Just 2 questions

Hello and greetings from Denmark!

I am planning my next year trip to Britain.

I think, that I would like to visit Isle of Man so I have 2 questions.

1) Is there anywhere in the isle a historic pub worth visiting?

2) Do you know how much (more or less) it costs to fly from IOM to Glasgow, where I might continue my trip?

jakesnan; you're a treasure! Steam Packet Holidays have been back to us; willing to help but not that nice and of course rubbishing TA reviews.

They've offered us the Welbeck which is No. 2 on the reviews. We do want town centre, mainly for the evenings. We don't need country quiet, just don't want the night club below and noisy car park behind. We will have our car (it's only £29 in Oct); mainly for convenience of home to hotel with all our luggage and for touring the island all day on the Saturday.

Jim Cardiff, if it was me that set your sails up, so be it.

I have neither the time nor the inclination to check all your past posts to see the didgy facts in your current ones.

I could care less if you loved the island in the past or not, I only had problems with the post to which I responded. And I expect, some of the shops that were closed down when you came in easter may now have other shops. who knows really, but they probably do.

Like I have said, been all over the world, incl Wales, and Ramsey compares favorably to many places. At least you weren't set upon and killed by yobs on our local high street like my partners work colleage was in the UK last week.

You are doing such a great job for Manx tourism that I really think you should apply for the post over here.

And yes, to agree with Jim, the Island's transport links are/can be a rip off for short notice trips (for us too, going off island for weddings/funerals etc.,) BUT if you can book ahead there are some bargains around by air where there IS competition unlike the Packet Monopoly.
