Isle of Man Holidays
This sea-bound kingdom is a place of rich history and tradition where you will hear stories of giants and fairies, be captivated by ancient Viking ruins, ride an impressive network of heritage railways and always receive the warmest of welcomes.
The Island’s capital, Douglas, with its sweeping seaside promenade and bustling culture quarter is alive with cosy pubs and trendy restaurants. Discover the national museum and the Gaiety Theatre, a jewel in the Manx heritage crown. The town is also the starting point of the Isle of Man Steam Railway and Manx Electric Railway, which lead south and north respectively.
Around the island, Castletown has one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval castles - Castle Rushen; Laxey is where you can glimpse the world’s largest working waterwheel - Lady Isabella; Peel and Port Erin have glorious sandy beaches and sheltered bays; and Ramsey boasts an impressive working harbour.
A playground for outdoor adventure, take to the island’s emerald waters aboard a sea kayak or test your skills on a stand up paddleboard. For faster paced adventures, take a Segway, Quad Bike Tour or Trike Tour around the world famous TT course. Or, if you prefer something slower paced, marvel at majestic landscapes and follow the Way of the Gull (Raad ny Foillan) on the island’s iconic 100 mile coastal footpath.
A melting pot of character and taste, food and drink is a vital ingredient in the Island’s heritage. From handpicked delights at local farms to home reared Loaghtan lamb and freshly caught queenies, the Isle of Man is the perfect destination for lovers of fine food and drink.
