I would like to travel to the Isle of Mann to see the TT races. Is there a good location to stay in Douglas which is not 5-star expensive ? Also close to good local restaurants. Any other suggestions would be helpful.
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
Last time I was in Douglas there was talk of booting the shopowners out of the Villa Marina, and replacing them with a medical centre. That’ll be fun, won’t it? Sitting in the Doctor’s surgery feeling grim, with a Robert Plant soundcheck going on next door. Dragging yourself along the Prom in mid-Winter to go to the doctor. Joining the ticket queue, only to find it’s the queue for repeat prescriptions…. Anyway, does anybody know how far they’ve got with this daft idea? Am I still going to be able to buy my gifts & souvenirs in the Villa Marina Arcade this year, or do Pickwick’s now have the monopoly?
I remember the Falcon Cliff in the 80's when they had entertainment on. Iread on a site today that it is not a hotel any longer. Is this true? And if not a hotel, what is it? Thanks. Paul.
