Most of us are aware that the Isle of Man is probably most familiar to the motorcycle fraternity and to visit during the race period is both exciting and a wonderful spectacle. However, the island is a fantastic short break or holiday destination practically at any time of year. Yes – even in the winter! The scenery and rolling waves in adverse weather are simply a ‘must see’.
Things you might not be quite so aware of however are the myriad of interesting and affordable places to visit in the Isle of Man, regardless of the weather! The Isle of Man static caravan hire industry positively thrives all year round with caravan holiday parks offering a variety of on-site activities and facilities.
Steam and Electric Railways
A visit and ride on the Isle of Man Steam Railway is a great experience and of course for those who remember, a walk down memory lane, but even for children an exciting experience to ride on a steam locomotive and smell the steam and witness the raw power of train travel from a bygone era. Check out the fantastic video of this steam railway below:
Not to be outdone, there’s also The Manx Electric Railway, which will take you to the highest point on the island, where you can have a walk about or just admire the stunning views sat in the cosy tea room.
So many museums!
If you’re the more indoor sort, there are no less than 15 museums to visit on the island, ranging from a motor museum and transport museums to a Viking museum; and of course the obligatory motorcycle museum.
Walking, Hiking and Adventure Parks
Do you like hiking or walking? There are plenty of places to go on adventures here. If you like doing your own thing, there are endless possibilities.
There are a number of really interesting and unusual nature parks and walks, where you will see sights not seen anywhere else in the UK. There’s even an ‘adventure park’ which is great fun and challenging for youngsters and parents.
Naturally, all the usual amenities are readily available including pubs, restaurants, theatre and shops of every type.
The best part of Isle of Man static caravan hire is that all of these great places, and things to see and do, are just a hop skip and a jump from pretty much anywhere on the island.
