Douglas to Peel and back

by EGorton

Will be staying in Douglas from 18th to 22nd September. There are 3 of us and we want to spend one day in Peel. Trains don't seem to go there and we don't travel well on buses! Are taxis readily available in both places and are they very expensive?
Will be very grateful for any information,

Many thanks

EG

Hi there,

A taxi will be steep from Douglas to Peel.

A friend of mine was looking at getting a taxi from airport to Douglas and then back again (about the same distance as Douglas - Peel)- it turned out to be cheaper to hire a car for 24 hours!!

The buses really aren't that bad over here. They don't get too busy as long as you avoid travelling at either end of the school day (ie; 8.00am - 9.00am and 3.00pm - 4.00pm). They are pretty cheap and are generally clean and comfortable.

Hope you enjoy your trip!

Kristy :-)

If you want to explore the island by public transport, buy the Island Explorer ticket - 12 pounds for one day, 24 pounds for three days - which allows unlimited travel for the specified period on the island's buses, trains and horse-drawn tram.

Travel Tips for Douglas

Don't be sorry, take these with you.

by Pauldelabar

A warm jumper for the top of Snaefell. Seasick pills if you're going by ferry. It is the Irish sea after all ! Your camera for 'those views'.
Binoculars. As there are beautiful beaches, don't forget your swimming gear. Although this is a British protectorate, take some ID as well as your driving licence with you as you may need it to hire a car.

Groudle Glen

by Pauldelabar

To the north of Douglas and half way towards Laxey, is Groudle Glen. This is a very picturesque location in itself as can be seen from the picture of the little waterwheel.

But also, Groudle Glen is the starting point of another little steam railway built originally to take tourists to see the Sealion sea enclosure below the rugged cliffs. The Sealions have long gone but the railway has been rebuilt from the track up and is another great attraction of the Isle of Man.

Ah Douglas... Blackpool meets the City of London

by Kettleman

"Changing?"

It's 22 years since I was last in Douglas and much has changed in the meantime.

Out in the country the IoM still feels like you are stepping back to childhood days, and for me that is circa 1960!

Douglas though? No.

Still the tackiness that affects all seaside towns on the mainland, but hotels that once served the "wakes week" punters from Lancashire and further afield lives side by side with banks and other financial instittuions that have started to push out the ordinary punter looking for a week "abroad" where he can get a pint like at home and speak English to the natives.

This year I hadn't seen so many suited and booted (and generally po faced tossers) on the street since I last went to the City of London!

And as I work very close I see them everyday.

Whilst this may good for the Isle of man economy, let's hope that the real Manx can still be found.

Douglas - Isle of Man

by AnjoLuci

Douglas is the Isle of Man capital with by far the highest population at over 25,000. It is the island hub for shipping, transport, shopping, and entertainment. It is also the home of the government and main finance sector.

Located on the east coast of the Isle of Man. Douglas has been the island's capital since 1863 and holds most of the island action. Its beautiful sea front is lined with picturesque hotels and restaurants. The shopping high street is filled with familiar names like Boots, Marks & Spencer, Next, and many more as well as many locally owned stores. Parking is available on the sea front or in various car parks around the town.

The south side is close to town, steam railway, buses and sea terminal, but very noise.

The north side leaves behind the noise of town and is closer to the Manx Electric Railway. From spring to early autumn the Horse Drawn Trams run along the front. This can make a big difference for those without cars, who wish to get along the 2 mile long promenade.

Buses and Taxis are also available
