2018 is the Isle of Man’s ‘Year of Our Island’, celebrating all that is great about living in and visiting what, for connoisseurs of steam travel and vintage transport, is one of the UK’s hidden gems. What better time, then, to join Ffestiniog Travel’s Isle of Man Driving Experience, a week-long holiday that goes behind the scenes of working railways and trams whilst touring this pretty island in style? Departing 29 September, the price is from £1,385 pp (two sharing) including seven nights’ B&B in Douglas, three lunches, two dinners, a three-day Go Explore ticket & five-day Go Explore Heritage ticket, excursions as per the itinerary, and tour leader.
