Situated on a bay that is roughly 2 miles long, Douglas is the main commercial hub on the island for business, finance, legal services, transport, shopping, entertainment and shipping.

There are many things to see and do in Douglas including the Tower Refuge which is a small castle like shelter built on Conister Rock in Douglas Bay as a sanctuary for shipwrecked sailors. Visitors also enjoy taking a ride on a horse drawn tram which operates along the promenade from the Sea Terminal to the Manx Electric Railway. There are also steam trains that run for 15 miles from Douglas railway station to Port Erin in the south of the island. Finally, for petrol heads, the Isle of Man TT motorcycle race, which is held annually, starts and ends in Douglas.

Douglas Port is the primary and only ferry port on the Isle of Man, with services connecting the island with the British Isles and the Irish mainland. The ferry terminal is situated on the waterfront, on Central Promenade, right in the heart of the city.

Belfast Guide

Belfast Harbour is an important seaport in the United Kingdom, with one of the leading ferry operators, Stena Line, connecting it with Liverpool and Cairnryan. You can also reach Belfast from the Isle of Man, with seasonal services provided by Steam Packet.

Belfast is Northern Ireland's capital city, surrounded by mountains creating a specific climate beneficial to horticulture. Moreover, it lies at the mouth of the River Lagan located in County Antrim, although parts of east and south Belfast are actually located in County Down. It is, then, quite a green space and offers visitors plenty of parkland and forest parks to explore from Cave Hill Country Park and Lagan Valley Regional Park to the Victorian Botanic Gardens in the heart of the city.

From an architectural perspective Belfast has some fine buildings including the Edwardian City Hall and the modern Waterfront Hall. Many of the city's Victorian landmarks, including the main Lanyon Building at Queen's University Belfast and the Linenhall Library, were designed by Sir Charles Lanyon.
