About

Laxey Glen, a favourite among tourists and locals alike, is a popular spot for families of all ages with its playground and grassed paddocks. The glens appearance, rich in mature exotic trees and natural woodland, differs significantly from the 1800 when a planting programme initially began. The pleasure ground for which the gardens were so well known came into existence when a Victorian businessman saw the potential of the then fledging tourist industry and developed various attractions. After the war, the number of visitors dramatically declined, resulting in the natural woodland environment enjoyed today.

Located within the glen is the recently renovated Laxey Pavilion, which hosts community events, public and private functions.
