Tour Itinerary

Day 2—Today we will board the Isle of Man Steam Railway.  The longest narrow-gauge steam line in the UK, still operating with its original locos and carriages.  The 16-mile journey transports you through charming countryside to Port Erin & Rushen Castle - one of Europe’s most finely preserved Medieval Castles.  From here we tour the western shoreline, stopping at Port St Mary, Port Erin and Peel with its castle, famous for its kippers and best place in the UK to observe basking sharks.  Enroute we stop at Twynwald Hill, an artificial stepped mound, dating back to the first millennium AD. It is the traditional ancient meeting place of the Manx parliamentary assembly, as it still used nowadays to focus the future culture and lifestyles for those who live on the island
