Isle of Man

Isle of Man

Once again, it gives us pleasure to offer our hugely popular Isle of Man holiday. The Isle of Man is an ancient Viking Kingdom which has never been part of the U.K and who’s well known three legged emblem originates from a symbol used on 10th century coins. The Island’s coastline ranges from quiet secluded coves to busy harbours and clean sandy beaches. Our chosen resort is Douglas with a Victorian seafront and long promenades where horse drawn trams still operate

Holiday Highlights

• Castletown and Cregneash

• Port Erin and Peel

• Laxey

• St John, home of the Manx Parliament


We depart and make our way to
Heysham for the afternoon sailing to the Isle
of Man. On arrival we continue to Douglas and
our hotel for the next 4 nights with dinner,
bed and breakfast


Our excursion today takes us first
to Laxey, home of the famous ‘Lady Isabella’
water wheel, and the Laxey Woollen Mill.
We return to Douglas for a free afternoon to
explore this delightful town.


We enjoy a full day tour around
the island firstly visiting Ramsey then Bride,
final resting place of the great comedian
and Manx resident Norman Wisdom before
spending time in Peel with its small harbour
and ancient castle, then St Johns, home of the
ancient Manx parliament. Our return includes
the lofty South Barrule road.


We visit the south of the island
today – first stop is Castletown, the island’s
former capital, and then on to Cregneash,
with stunning views of the Calf of Man. Port
Erin, its beautiful bay guarded by the bulk of
Bradda Head, is our next stop and we end the
day with a visit to Peel before returning via
Union Mills, another famous TT landmark.


After breakfast we return to the
harbour for the crossing to Heysham, then
onwards to the West Country.
