The Isle of Man has some great Victorian heritage sites and museums for you to enjoy during your trip. If you decide to take the Heritage Steam Railway to the south of the Island and visit the "living museum" of Cregneash it is well worth taking your time to visit the Sound and Calf of Man as well.
Set on the very southern tip of the Island, the Sound Cafe is set in an ideal location to enjoy the stunning view out over the Sound and the Calf of Man, a tiny island acting as a Nature Reserve and Bird Observatory. If you are feeling adventurous you can even arrange to stay a night on the Calf, although you will need a sleeping bag and food as well as arranging a local fishing boat to take you over!
The Calf of Man is located on one of Britain's major migration route and is the perfect place to study many aspects of bird life and habitat. The visitor centre, next to the cafe provides a wide range of information about the local wildlife as well as the wrecks of shrunken ships in the area.
Those of you who enjoy walking holidays will also find the location an ideal start of finish point to coastal footpath leading to Spanish head in Port Erin, or the Chasms in Port St Mary.
