This is the Ben My Chree arrived at Douglas Sea Terminal.Unlike the airport, the Sea Terminal is in Douglas city centre at the south end of the promenade, a few minutes walk from all the main hotels, see map.

You hop on a train to either Heysham (just north of Blackpool) or Liverpool and take a comfortable ferry to Douglas on the Isle of Man with the famous Isle of Man Steam Packet Company. These trains tilt into the corners at high speed on the curvaceous West Coast main Line...The most famous and luxurious hotel in town is the Sefton, the Empress is also a good choice.Are you new to town, are you alone and feel left out from what is happening in the real world? Is it difficult to find the environment where you can make new friends? Looking to meet friends, who would like to get together for regular dinners, perhaps BBQs, picnics, or if you feel that you are walking alone we can meet up and go for weekly walks, movies, bonfires , fun times. What you do in your own private time is your business. My hope is that as we can create this family of friends that it will grow, thrive and inspire others.It also means you can hold accommodation while you finalise your itinerary, and alter your plans as they evolve - a great feature I use all the time when putting a trip together.In Douglas, most of the hotels are arranged along the promenade, a few minutes walk from the sea terminal.
