Take time to explore the Isle of Man’s charming towns and villages and discover a wide range of things to see and do during your stay.
Whatever you’re looking for – whether it’s a journey back in time to discover the history and heritage of the Island, a traditional bucket and spade beach break, or somewhere to be active while surrounded by stunning scenery - you’ll find it here on the Isle of Man.
The Island’s capital, Douglas, is a great place to begin your trip. As well as the main shopping area and entertainment complexes, you’ll find the starting point of the Steam Railway and Manx Electric Railway, which lead south and north respectively. The Story of Mann trail also starts in Douglas and will act as your guide to the heritage attractions located around the Island.
Visit the ancient cobbled streets of Castletown in the south of the Island to see one of Europe’s most preserved medieval castles – Castle Rushen, or head for Laxey in the east for a glimpse of the world’s largest working waterwheel – Lady Isabella.
Over on the west coast, Peel and Port Erin have glorious sandy beaches, sheltered bays, and the chance to spot basking sharks and seals. No trip to either destination is complete without a delicious Manx ice cream as you stroll along the beach or sit and admire the rolling waves of the Irish Sea.
For those visitors who want to do something active, why not take advantage of the fantastic walking trails in Port St Mary or try something a little more adventurous – such as coasteering, canoeing or abseiling at an activity centre based near to Ramsey in the north of the Island.
Rest assured, wherever you choose to visit and whatever you choose to do, you’ll be guaranteed a warm Manx welcome.
