Ramsey Park Hotel, Isle of Man - 6 Days Isle of Man. Sometimes the best discoveries are right under your nose…welcome to the Isle of Man. Situated between the coastlines of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, in the middle of the Irish Sea, you’ll find this beautiful Island. Blessed with an extensive coastline, stunning natural landscapes and unspoilt beaches, the Isle of Man is a perfect holiday destination that’s within easy reach of the rest of the British Isles. Visit the Island and you’ll find a place full of contrasts and character. With a wealth of things to see and do, places to visit, whether you’re passionate about history and culture, wildlife or heritage transport. For the thousands of visitors who are welcomed there year after year the Isle of Man is an unforgettable short break destination – will you be next to fall under its spell? Ramsey Park Hotel. Set in the historic town of Ramsey, and commanding stunning views over Mooragh Lake and the island’s coast. All rooms have been individually designed to a very high standard, with super king-sized beds in each room which can be made as a Double or a Twin beds. Many of the rooms overlook the impressive lake and Sky Hill, others face the promenade and coastline with views towards Scotland and Cumbria in the distance. The itinerary: Day One: Depart from Spalding at 7am, to Heysham for the ferry crossing to Douglas, arriving at the hotel about 7pm Day Two: Today we explore the north and north east of the Isle of Man with coastal views, mining history and local heritage. Leaving our hotel in Ramsey, we head to the Great Laxey Wheel, the largest working waterwheel in the world which pumped water out of the Great Laxey Mine. We then return to the outskirts of Ramsey and visit the Grove Museum – a time capsule of Victorian and Edwardian life - and follow the visit with a lunch break in Ramsey. We’ll head for the northern point of the Island to explore the Point of Ayre – only 16 miles from Scotland – where arctic terns nest, and visit the little church at Bride where we’ll find Norman Wisdom’s grave. Maughold Parish Church is our final stop with the largest collection of Celtic and Norse crosses on the Island. Day Three: The southern part of the Isle of Man is where we explore today. We follow the TT course ‘over the mountain’ to Douglas and then south across the Fairy Bridge to the ancient capital of Castletown to see Castle Rushen, a well-preserved medieval castle and home to the Kings and Lords of Mann. We then catch the steam train from Castletown to Port Erin and have a lunch break in this lovely seaside village. Heading to the southwest corner of the Isle of Man we visit Cregneash Folk Museum with its thatched cottages and see how life was lived in farming communities at the beginning of the 20th century. Our final stop is at the Sound where we look over to the Calf of Man (an island nature reserve) and go seal and bird-spotting. Heading north we take a scenic route that leads back to the TT course and follow it to Ramsey. Day Four: Today we ‘go west’! We head for St John’s and explore the village and Tynwald Hill – the Island’s outdoor assembly site where the Island’s parliamentary assembly is believed to have met in the open air for over a thousand years. It’s a short journey to Peel where we have time to visit Peel Castle, the House of Manannan (telling the Celtic, Viking and maritime stories of the Isle of Man), Peel Cathedral with its heritage gardens. Peel has a lovely beach, good food and seafood and great ice cream so you’ll be free to choose lunch here. Have you tried Manx queenies? Or a kipper bap? Just south of Peel is the Knockaloe visitor centre which tells the story of the WWI Knockaloe internment camp which housed over 23,000 men. A scenic coastal route then takes us north to Kirk Michael and back to Ramsey. Day Five: Today we will head for the electric tram from Ramsey to Laxey, then up Snaefell mountain on the Mountain Railway where on a clear day you can see England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Then it is on to Douglas for the rest of the afternoon. Day Six: Depart from the hotel at 6.45am. We expect to arrive back in Spalding at about 5pm.
