Ramsey Things to Do
Developed in the mid 1900s by a Liverpudlian shipping merchant, Duncan Gibb, as a summer retreat for his family and it later became the family's permanent home (it is still with the Gibb family). A visit here is like stepping back in time, there are; period rooms, with many original furnishings and fittings, a costume room, and displays of the family's possessions. You can also see the outbuildings, with period vehicles and agricultural equipment. The restaurant serves hot and cold food and there is also a museum shop on site. The Museum is open daily from April to October between 10am and 5pm.

The are plenty of things to do on the lake including sailing boats, canoes and pedalos. There are also tennis courts, a bowling green, crazy golf, outside exercise equipment and a BMX track.

Ramsey Off The Beaten Path
The tower was built to commemorate the royal visit of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria in 1847. During the visit Prince Albert made his way to Lhergy Frissel and he climbed to the top of the hill. From there he viewed the surroundings and the hill was renamed Albert Mount because of this. The tower was then built a year later and stands at 45 feet tall, the tower would stand as a landmark not only for the town of Ramsey, but also for the Isle of Man.
The tower is in Ramsey and you can get to it through Lhergy Frissel Glen or by using other footpaths close by the Hairpin Corner.
N.B. The paths to the tower can be challenging, but do go right up to it.
