Heritage of the Isle of Man
Situated between the coastlines of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, in the middle of the Irish Sea, the self-governing crown dependency of the Isle of Man is blessed with an extensive coastline, stunning natural landscapes and unspoilt beaches. We have brought together the outstanding attractions, including castles, villages, museums and grand houses to create a comprehensive tour of this fascinating little island nation.
Our tour begins in the ancient capital of Castletown, where we visit Castle Rushen, former seat of the Kings and Lords of Mann, and the Old House of Keys, which was once the centre of 19th century political life on the Island, followed by an ancient school and the picturesque village of Creagneash. A trip on the Victorian Manx Electric Tramway takes us to Ramsey in the north of the island, where we visit the Grove Museum of Victorian Life and the house and grounds of Milntown. Next we travel over part of the route used during the famous TT motorcycle races and visit Peel Castle, which was the fort of an 11th century Viking King of Mann; The House of Manannan, which uses state of the art display techniques to take visitors on an exciting journey through the Isle of Man’s colourful history, and Tynwald Hill, which plays host to an annual open air meeting of the Island’s parliament, Tynwald. Finally we visit the iconic Laxey Wheel and take a walk through the Great Laxey Mines.
