🇬🇧 The Mail on Sunday’s Alice Smellie has been visiting the Isle of Man for the past 40-odd years and says you can find ‘masses to do in all seasons’. Don’t miss a ride on the island’s 1870s steam train.
The Isle of Man – its name derives from the sea god Manannan – nestles in a mild micro-climate in the middle of the choppy Irish Sea. There have been visitors to the island since Vikings landed back in the 8th Century, though tourists these days tend to sightsee rather than settle.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have been one of them for the past 40-odd years, except in 2020 when the Manx government closed the borders. Fully vaccinated 21st Century visitors were welcomed back from June 28.
I come back to see my family, but you can find masses to do in all seasons (for all ages) and the landscape is staggeringly beautiful and diverse.
