About Douglas

The kingdom of Man is a mystical island located at the geographical centre of the British Isles in the middle of the Irish Sea. The island is well connected to both Britain and Ireland, with daily departures from Douglas Ferry Port to Liverpool, Liverpool Birkenhead, Heysham, Dublin and Belfast. All Douglas ferries can be booked through AFerry

The island of Man measures just 33 miles by 13 but within these shores there is a wealth of discoveries to be made. It is a very different island, with its own legal system and the world's oldest continuous parliament - Tynwald.

The main port of Douglas has experienced changes with the construction of a second link span. This elevated passenger walkway was built on reclaimed land during the nineties to provide up-to-date facilities for the new design of conventional and fast roll on - roll off ferries now operating to the island.

About Heysham

The town of Heysham is an interesting old fishing port. It acts as a gateway to the nearby popular seaside resort Morecambe and one of England's oldest cities, Lancaster. Worth exploring in Heysham is the new Heritage Centre, the public gardens and the ruins of the ancient chapel St Patrick's, close to St Peter's Church.

    • We were in Isle of Man for a wedding, what a beautiful place. the ferry transport was perfect, only thing we thought let it down slightly was the price, what a shame, we would love to go back for a return visit, but to be honest, its to expensive to get there.
