Located in the Irish Sea and famed for the world-renowned Isle of Man TT, on this charming rail holiday we will explore the rugged isle known as Mann. From golden, sloping, sandy beaches to 11th century Viking built castles and Victorian horse drawn trams, to take a trip to the isle of Man is to take a trip to a truly unique destination, where culture, nature, history, and a close-knit community go hand in hand. During our five days on the island, we will enjoy two magnificent rail journeys; one aboard the Snaefell Mountian Railway, the British Isles’ only electric mountain rail and one aboard the Isle of Man Steam Railway offering us a glimpse back in time as we admire the isle’s abundant wildlife, flora and fauna. We will also spend time in the capital of Douglas – a wonderful holiday resort with a working harbour. A perfect break for those wanting to experience all that the Isle of Man has to offer.
