Isle of Man

Last updated: 24 December 2017
The Isle of Man is known as the Jewel of the Irish Sea for its rugged coast and pastoral countryside. One of the best ways to view the surrounding countryside is to take a ride on the hundred-year-old steam train as it takes on the longest narrow gauge railway line in the British Isles.  

Visit Castle Town, which dates back to 1090 AD, The pretty harbour is backed by the stone Castle Rushen, a well-preserved medieval building, containing a museum, complete with wax works and themed castle scenes.
