In the heart of the Irish Sea, on the north west coast of England, lies Britain’s best kept secret – the Isle of Man, an island shrouded in mystery.
Friday We travel to the Isle of Man from Heysham to Douglas on the Isle of Man Steam Packet.
Saturday Today we enjoy a guided tour of the island. The guide will give you an opportunity to learn a little more about the fascinating and sometimes turbulent past of the island. Just 33 miles long by 13 miles wide, the Isle of Man has retained its independence with its own currency, stamps, government and even language.
Sunday Following breakfast, we enjoy a scenic journey on the Isle of Man Steam Railway from Douglas to Port Erin. Experience the grandeur of travelling between Douglas and the south of the Island, through the Manx countryside, on a Victorian railway perfectly frozen in time.
Monday Enjoy a day at leisure or we may offer an optional excursion (charge applicable). Your driver will provide you with further information.
Tuesday We depart after breakfast and return home.
