Whether for a gentle stroll or for the more serious walker, the Island is a perfect place to explore on foot.
The picturesque ‘salmon walks’ around Laxey take you along byways to the Laxey Wheel, Glen Gardens and Valley Gardens.
Take the victorian electric tram from Laxey to the summit of Snaefell. On a clear day you can see England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
Also from Laxey, the Manx Electric Railway follows the coast to Douglas and Ramsey.
From paddleboarding to sailing and kayaking to coasteering, there’s plenty to keep you busy if you’re a water sports fan.
And if you’ve never done it before but would like to give it a try, you’ll find some great options for lessons and guides around the island.
From Douglas, the Isle of Man Steam Railway meanders through woodland and headland to Port Erin, in the south of the Island, with many stops along the way.
This is a unique spectacle, the largest working water wheel in the world. If you have a head for heights you can climb to the top of this 72½ foot diameter wheel. You can also follow the paths and even go underground. The Wheel is about 1½ miles up the valley from the chalet.
If the theatre is your thing - you'll be spoiled for choice! Steeped in history and tradition, the Gaiety theatre is one of the finest examples designed by the legendary theatre architect, Frank Matcham. You can even take a tour of the theatre – and look out for the resident ghosts!
