The brand new Ramsey Park is set in Ramsey, the second largest town on the Isle of Man, which is the capital of the north of the island. The town is also known as Royal Ramsey because of the many occasions when it has hosted visits from British monarchy over the centuries, and it is steeped in local history.
The Isle of Man has some fantastic activities right on our doorstep, which makes Ramsey Park the perfect spot for families and children coming to visit the island. Local activities include swimming, bowling, cycling and a walk up the beautiful Sky Hill to take in some of the best views of the Island is a must. Local horse riding centres are close by and the Curraghs Wild Life Park is perfect for a day out for all the family to enjoy.

Here’s some ideas to help you make the most of your stay:
Mooragh Park & Lake
Near the town of Ramsey and not far from the coast lies a beautiful lake set in green surroundings. Children can play on swings, slides and other outside playground equipment as parents watch from nearby benches. There’s a shallow pool for paddling in warm weather.
Isle of Man TT Race
The legendary Isle of Man TT races, which are held in June and the Manx GP which is held in August, always attracts thousands of visitors each year to see the fast paced racers around the Island. The 37¾ mile circuit passes through Ramsey before the infamous mountain section which has seen so many races won or lost over the past 100 years.
Nigel Mansell was the ex-club champion at Ramsey Golf Club, which boasts an enjoyable, although somewhat demanding course. The northern Island course is not too hilly and so makes a good day's golfing. The first six and last two holes are over flat ground divided by a brook, while the remaining 10 are set in wooded parkland with a hilly backdrop. The first hole, a par five, presents a real challenge, playing into the prevailing wind with a stream on the left and across the fairway on the right. The third green looks deceptively easy... but is really very tricky. An interesting course close to town, established around 1891, with some spectacular views and a range of amenities.
The first long distance footpath, it was established in 1979 to celebrate the Millennium year of the Manx Parliament, Tynwald. The path links Ramsey to Castletown, following the way of past Manx Kings through the centre of the island. The route was once known as the Royal Way and is recorded in the 13th Century Chronicles of the Kings of Mann and the Isles. It is known as an early highway with a long and old history.
Set in rolling farmland close to the base of North Barrule, the centre offers a range of outdoor activities for all ages and all levels of challenge including:
Abseiling, Air rifle shooting, Archery, Assault Course, Air Rifle, Archery, Assault Course, Coasteering, Canoeing, Cliff Abseil, Field Archery, Gorge walking, Mountain Biking, Power Boat Driving and Raft Building
A fun and friendly environment for everyone to enjoy, with a large pool, public sessions, adult only swims, fun sessions, ladies nights and parent and toddler sessions.
The Grove Museum of Victorian Life tells the story of the Gibb family and their Victorian summer retreat, which later became their permanent residence and family home. Beautifully preserved to provide an intriguing insight into life in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, a visit to the house, outbuildings and country garden is like stepping back in time.Click here for other Heritage Sites on the Island
The Manx Electric Railway started out as public transport mainly for tourists, but also saw its lines used for the transportation of goods and animals. It became a part of island transport which managed to stand the tests of time and progress.
A well designed park, which in no way could be called a zoo. The animals live in large enclosures designed with their natural habitats in mind. Paved paths go through the enclosures, where the animals roam freely. Feeding times offer an interactive view of the animals, especially with the penguins who can smell the food coming. The nature trails wind through different parts of the Curraghs, where butterflies, birds and other wetland insect and animals can be seen. The park offers a relaxing time out in nature with a chance to see a variety of animals. Well worth a visit.
