You’re just a five-minute drive from the ancient capital, Castletown. Settled on the south of the island, Castletown boasts one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Europe. With its imposing fortress, Castle Rushen is not to be missed.
Castletown also houses a fine selection of antique shops, restaurants and cosy pubs. Head to the pretty harbour where the Nautical Museum sits. This is a top attraction charting the story of the island’s maritime history.
A further 10-minute drive from Castletown (via the A5) is Port Erin. With its secluded bay and sheltered sandy beach, it’s popular with families and watersports enthusiasts. The Isle of Man Steam Railway line and the Port Erin Railway Museum also live here, offering visitors the chance to travel on the longest narrow gauge steam line in Britain. And don’t miss the impressive collection of transport memorabilia.
Port St Mary is also nearby and home to the island’s only golf course, as well as Cregneash – a “living museum” showing visitors what it was like to live in a typical 19th-century Manx crofting community.
