HERITAGE HOLIDAYS ON THE ISLE OF MAN

Why is the Isle of Man so great for Heritage holidays?

The Isle of Man is an Island steeped in over 10,000 years of history. An unforgettable experience for all.

Ancient monuments, fascinating castles, interactive museums and burial sites all form part of the rich tapestry of the Isle of Man. Walk in the footsteps of the Celts and Vikings, experience a way of life like never before at Cregneash Folk Village or step back in time and visit the Great Laxey Wheel and mines.

Heritage holidays on The Isle of Man

Ancient monuments, fascinating castles, interactive museums and burial sites all form part of the rich tapestry of the Isle of Man. Walk in the footsteps of the Celts and Vikings, experience a way of life like never before at Cregneash Folk Village or step back in time and visit the Great Laxey Wheel and mines. Start your journey at the Manx Museum in Douglas, which also houses the National Art Gallery and offers free admission.

Travel around the Island using our unique heritage transport system which forms an integral part of our rich past. The Isle of Man Steam Railway takes you on a nostalgic trip rocking gently through the countryside from Douglas to Port Erin passing through the ancient Capital of Man Castletown and Port St Mary a traditional Manx seaside village. The Manx Electric Railway winds its way north from Douglas up the east coast of the Island trundling through Laxey, Maughold and Dhoon passing through scenic glens, landscapes and stunning coastal scenery.
