Hands-on Isle of Man Railway experience in a special anniversary year
Created: 02 March 2023
With two railways celebrating milestone anniversaries in 2023 this is the year to visit the Isle of Man and indulge in its wonderful vintage transport heritage. The Isle of Man Steam Railway is 150 years old and the Manx Electric Railway celebrates its 130th birthday. Go behind the scenes of both and enjoy footplate rides and drive a tram on Ffestiniog Travel's 8-day Isle of Man Driving Experience tour. This pretty island is a hidden gem for steam travel and old-fashioned transportation and this tour includes them all with many hands-on extras and behind the scenes guided tours. A great way to explore this pretty island. Departing 11 September 2023, this tour costs from £1,810pp and includes hotel B&B accommodation, a Go Explore travel card, excursions, 3 dinners, 3 lunches and the services of a tour leader throughout.
