Northern Discovery Tour
This tour shows the best of the distinctive scenery, character and history of the north. It is ideal for those who may have already visited the south and are looking for a contrast.
After pick-up from Douglas the tour follows the coast road with tremendous sea views to the old mining village of Laxey where the 72 feet diameter Lady Isabella Wheel stands as the Island's most iconic structure. The trip continues north following the tracks of the century old Manx Electric Railway.
It takes in Maughold an important religious site for 1,400 years and home to a wonderful display of Celtic and Norse Crosses. Then through Ramsey to the charming village of Bride, where the Island's most famous celebrity, Sir Norman Wisdom, is buried. The Point of Ayre is the most northerly place on the Island, where there are two lighthouses and a fog-horn.
The tour turns south for a stop to see a herd of unique Loaghtan sheep. It returns to Douglas over the historic TT Mountain Course which climbs up to 1,400 feet to pass Snaefell then descends past the iconic Creg ny Baa pub.
The tour lasts approx. 3 hours, with 5-6 stops at points of significance.
Price is £150 per car.
