Itinerary

Description

The Isle of Man is a unique place with a fascinating and turbulent history. Located midway between Ireland and the British mainland in the Irish Sea, the island is self-governing, with its own surviving language and distinctive flag. We experience the best of the island’s sights and attractions during this relaxing week.

Coach Itinerary

Day 1

We fly to the Isle of Man and transfer to our hotel in Douglas, the capital of the island.

Day 2 – Day at leisure in Douglas

Day 3 – Manx Electric Railway, Laxey Wheel & Snaefell Mountain Railway

We take a trip on the historic Manx Electric Railway, which still uses its original Victorian and Edwardian rolling stock. We journey along the scenic east coast with views of the beautiful Manx countryside on one side and far reaching views out to sea on the other. We disembark in Laxey to visit the Laxey Wheel, the largest working waterwheel in the world and known colloquially as the Lady Isabella.

From here we join the Snaefell Mountain Railway, where electric powered trains take passengers over 2,000ft up to the summit of Snaefell. We enjoy the spectacular views here before descending the mountain to pay a short visit to the peaceful port town of Ramsey.

Day 4 Peel & Moore’s Traditional Museum

On our half day excursion we go first to Peel, a charming town on the west coast renowned for its narrow lanes crammed with fishermen’s cottages and the striking red sandstone used to build its castle. The town is also home to Moore’s Traditional Museum, where we see how the famous Manx kippers are made.

Day 5 Day at leisure in Douglas

Day 6 Castletown, Port Erin, Cregneash & Isle of Man Steam Railway

From Castletown, the original capital of the island, we journey to Port Erin, a peaceful town with pretty gardens and a sandy beach that was first favoured by Victorian holidaymakers. We then journey back in time to the fascinating living museum of Cregneash Folk Village, where residents continue to use horsepower and speak the old local dialect. We end the day with a scenic trip back to Douglas on the well-preserved, narrow-gauge Isle of Man Steam Railway.

Day 7

We transfer to the island’s airport for our return flight home.
