Visit Douglas and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Douglas, Isle of Man. The island's capital and most popular holiday resort has a continental atmosphere. The promenade of the spacious 2-mile sea front is level with the sand; police in white helmets direct the traffic, and old-fashioned horse-drawn trams trundle gently along. On Prospect Hill stands the House of Keys, home of the Manx Parliament, the Tynwald, whose Scandinavian origins are earlier than those of Westminster.
Steam trains in summer connect Douglas with Port Erin. The Manx National Museum, on the bluff above St Thomas's Church, contains many relics of the island's heritage. In Noble's Park the tailless Manx cat is bred to preserve the species; a few cats are available for sale to visitors.
