I went back to the fairy glen in 2013 and 2014 having not been on the Isle of man since the early 70s. I went in as we used to from the seafront side and walked up the glen. In 2013 I went during daylight hours and although it was lovely and I got to sit on the cannons again,... More

Lights lovely - Not suitable for all ages though a bit steep. Still worth a visit as a lot of effort has gone into it.

I may be thought to be judging Summerhill Glen unfairly because I simply can't help comparing it to the Summerhill Glen of my childhood, and it doesn't come anywhere near! On it's own, it's a beautiful little glen ending in an elevated battery overlooking Douglas bay. However, the attraction for many is the illuminated displays that come on as it... More

A few days ago me and my family went to the summer hill glen in Douglas at night and it was beautiful. I loved all the lights and the pictures made out of lights and also the animation movie that was there as well. I suggest that it would be better for a couple or a family walk but your... More

A highlight of our first trip to the Isle of Man was visiting the lovely Glen. We went on a beautiful sunny afternoon and decided to go back at night. First we walked through to watch some bike racing at the top which finished just as darkness fell. The lights came on and made a wonderful display..Blackpool eat your heart... More

A daytime place to chill and read, just to get away. And in the evening, the lighting is a nice little attraction and distraction. Having seen larger elsewhere on my travels, this was kinda nice being in miniature.

Our hotel was at the north end of town & our walk up Summerhill Glen was great fun. It is lit up at this time of year but although not lit when we went, too early in the day we had great fun spotting all the figures that would be lit. It is an easy paved walk & very attractive.
