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?
Pay a visit to Kirk Maughold parish church to see 44 of the island's collection of ancient stone crosses, dating from the sixth to 13th centuries. They include Norse examples showing scenes from the story of Sigurd the Dragon Slayer (Church Road,
Maughold, IM7 1AS, maughold.org.im).
Add some laughs to your stay thanks to an evening with stand-up comedian Omid Djalili, who brings his new touring show Iranalamadingdong to the island on 19 March (Villa Marina, Harris Promenade, Douglas, IM1 2HJ, cfvg.gov.im).
