Isle of Man
Christmas on the Isle of Man
This Christmas I wanted to go somewhere different and interesting and the Isle of Man seemed to be the ideal destination. We stayed in Douglas and had days out exploring the island. Christmas was a very relaxing day strolling along the sea front at Douglas - in gale force winds which was very exhilarating. This is my story in pictures.
Four Days on the Isle of Man
The Isle of Man is often described as a different kingdom and it is true - wherever you are, whatever the weather visitors will find something to entrance and delight. Myths and legends abound and historical buildings reflect a past painted by Celts, Vikings and Norsemen. Journeys on heritage railways, walks in glens and sightings of the abundant wildlife are just a few of the joys of being on this lovely island. Visit the House of Manannan, Celtic god of the sea, and let him guide you through its fascinating history and traditions.
