Today started off a bit showery so we drove to Castletown to visit Castle Rushen, one of Europe’s best preserved mediaeval fortresses. The spiral stone staircases are worth the climb for the views at the top!
The rooms contained sights and sounds (but thankfully not the smells) of castle life!
We drove back to Peel and had a lovely lunch in ‘The Creek’ pub by the harbour.
After lunch we popped across the road to The House of Manannan, an interactive museum that uses video, audio and authentic recreations to bring the island’s Celtic and Viking history to life (and this one did include smells!).
Tomorrow looks to be a lot brighter so we will be off up Snaefell.
