Isle of Man Tour Itinerary
DAY 2 (BB) - Leisurely breakfast at the hotel followed by a morning drive into the Island's capital Douglas where you'll enjoy some free time before heading out via Onchan to Laxey, where you can marvel at the world’s largest working waterwheel, the Great Laxey Wheel. Standing at over 72 feet high the wheel, which is also known as Lady Isabella, has been one of the Isle of Man’s most popular tourist attractions for well over 150 years. You’ll have the opportunity to watch the wheel turning before attempting to climb to the top where you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views across the Glen Mooar Valley. Once back on solid ground you can walk through the valley to find the Great Laxey Mines – learn about the lives of the miners, walk into the mine audit and take a trip on the Great Laxey Mines Railway which was once used to carry lead and zinc ores from deep inside the Great Laxey Mine. In the afternoon you can take a trip on the Snaefell Mountain Railway to the summit of the Island’s only mountain where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Seven Kingdoms. The evening is at leisure.
DAY 3 (BB) - After breakfast, today you'll enjoy a drive on the Island's 39 mile TT circuit. The Isle of Man is the road-racing capital of the world, brimful with enthusiasts who just love their cars and motorcycles. Unlike the UK there is no national speed limit. There are speed restrictions in built up areas, but after passing a 'National Speed Limit' sign there ceases to be any speed restriction which explains why the Isle of Man is a 'must do' on most peoples shortlist of Great British Drives. Add to this heady mix, scenery so stunning that it looks as though someone stole the best bits of Dartmoor, Cornwall, Devon and Scotland and – surely – the most rip-roaring driving roads the British Isles has to offer. Evening at leisure.
DAY 4 (BB) - Breakfast followed by the day at leisure to enjoy more of the sights and attractions the Isle of Man has to offer. Experience the grandeur of travelling between Douglas and the south of the Island on a Victorian railway perfectly frozen in time. Visit one of the Island's numerous museums which include; Aviation Museum, Classic Motorcycle Museum, Jurby Transport Museum, Manx Museum, Manx Transport Heritage Museum, Nautical Museum and the railway Museum to mention just a few. Evening at leisure.
