We head to catch the ferry with a comfort stop on the way. We have chance to relax before digging into our evening meal.
On our first day we get to know Douglas, the Isle of Man’s capital town. Home to the island’s government and main financial sector, Douglas offers beautiful scenery and excellent shopping, not forgetting the Manx Museum which features displays of Viking gold.
Today we enjoy a guided tour of the island, visiting Peel, Ramsay and Laxey – an excellent way to see the sights and learn about the history of the island.
After breakfast, we take a steam train ride from Douglas to Port Erin, ending with the opportunity to enjoy free time in Port Erin. We then take the short journey to Port St. Mary where we have more free time.
We cross the Fairy Bridge on the way to Castletown, not forgetting to greet the little people “good day” along the way. Castletown was once the ancient capital of Mann and retains much of its former splendour.
On our final day, we take the early morning ferry back to the mainland and begin our journey home.
On the five-day holiday itinerary, we visit Castletown on day two after free time in Douglas in the morning, and travel home on day five. Days one, three and four remain the same.
