At Isle of Man

Organised by: Tim Roberts

We will travel over on the ferry from Liverpool from which can be booked on https://www.steam-packet.com although only 2 months in advance. Sailing time from Liverpool is 2h 45 mins. Return ticket prices for 1 car and 2 passengers are approx £200.
 
Accommodation will be in a 4 star hotel costs around £100-120 a night for a couple. There are many great locations we could stay at, given that everything on the island is no more than a 30 min drive away.  Choice will depend on how many registrations we get.
 
Some highlights of places to visit:
 
Snaefell – Highest point on the Isle of Man. 2037ft with views across to Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England on a clear day. Mountain Railway or 30 min walk from the car park. Café at the peak.
Laxey Wheel – The largest working waterwheel in the world, built in 1854. Steam train 1.5 miles into mine (Saturday only).
Peel Castle – 11th Century fort of Magnus Barefoot, 11th century Viking King of Mann
Castle Rushen in Castletown (The ancient capital of the Isle of Man). Originally built for a Norse king in around 1200AD, Castle Rushen was developed by successive rulers until the 1600s. During its time it was used as a fortress, royal residence, a mint and even a prison.
Grove Conservatory in Ramsey – Tea Room with home baked cakes and scones.
Spooyt Vane Waterfall - (White spout) waterfall at the top of Glen Mooar. In the centre of the glen are the remains of ‘Cabbal Pherick’. An ancient and listed monument from the 8th – 10th century.
Cashtal yn Ard -meaning ‘Castle of the Height’ in Manx, is a well-preserved Neolithic chambered tomb built around 1800BC giving views across Ramsey and across the sea to the lake district.
Isle of Man Steam Railway - Dating back to 1874 the Steam Railway line, which runs 15 1/2 miles from Douglas to Port Erin, is arguably the oldest narrow gauge railway in continuous operation in the British Isles. The railway still uses the original locomotives and rolling stock.

  1. Paul Funnell on 22 May 2020:

    I am already registered for the Isle of Man trip and see the trip has been postponed until next year.

    As I have already booked the hotel etc for the trip, can you please let me know what the dates will be for 2021 to enable me to adjust my bookings.

    Kind regards
