Cheap flights to Isle of Man
Sleepy Victorian villages, stunning rugged coastline and even the odd steam train or two; the Isle of Man is a slice of Britain from days gone by. Famous for its offshore bank accounts as for anything else, the Isle of Man is a surprisingly unspoilt gem of an island in the middle of the Irish Sea. At 365 square kilometres, this place is a microcosm of all things British. Well set foot on this island and you’ll come across swathes of leafy valleys, rolling green hills, heather covered moorland, and a healthy amount of woodland for starters. And that’s not mentioning the coastline, which is a mix of rugged beauty and picturesque sandy coves.
With its 17 national glens and never-ending network of footpaths let’s just say this is the place to be if you like the great outdoors. Make sure you pack those walking boots, oh, and your 5 iron – did we mention there are nine golf courses here too?
To get a taste of traditional Manx life in the 19th century head to Cregneash village located in the shadow of Meayll Hill and overlooking the Calf of Man. The quaint village gives visitors the chance to step inside original thatched cottages and learn about the farming and crofting way of life with unique demonstrations and interactive experiences.
From April 28 to May 1, walkers can experience the beautiful walking routes the island has to offer during the Isle of Man Walking Festival. Walkers can choose from a variety of routes, picking the level of difficulty and length they would like. Each walk is led by an experienced guide who will lead walkers across the stunning Manx countryside.
