Isle of Man
Staying at The Rutland Hotel, Douglas
Sunday 5th - Thursday 9th May 2019
After boarding our coach we travel to Heysham, a coastal village near Lancaster, for our ferry journey to Douglas. The ferry journey is around 3 hours and 30 minutes. We then arrive in Douglas early evening for our stay at The Rutland Hotel.
This morning we make a short journey, by coach, to the Manx Electric Railway Depot. From here we will take the electric railway to Laxey. Laxey is home to the world’s largest working waterwheel. After visiting the Great Wheel, we have some time in the beautiful village of Laxey before boarding the Snaefell Mountain Railway which takes us to the summit of the island’s only mountain, 2036ft above sea level. The views are superb and on a good day we can see England, Wales and Scotland. We return to the hotel in plenty of time for dinner.
Our day at leisure to enjoy Douglas. The town has a beautiful seafront lined with picturesque hotels and restaurants. The shopping street has many familiar names as well as interesting locally owned stores. Horse drawn trams run along the front, a perfect way to enjoy the 2-mile-long promenade.
Our excursion today takes us to the more southerly regions of the island by travelling on the longest narrow-gauge steam line in Britain. The Isle of Man Steam Railway is the original Victorian Train System that will take us from Douglas through the Manx Countryside to the island’s capital, Castletown. We have time to explore the town before joining our coach and travelling to Peel and The House of Mannanan. Here we can experience the island’s rich, Celtic, Viking and maritime past. A memorable experience. Once again, we will be back in time for dinner.
We leave the hotel after breakfast and return, by ferry, to Heysham on our homeward journey.
