Peel (Isle of Man)
Peel is a town on the Isle of Man.
Bus #6 goes from the Lord St bus stops to Derby St outside Peel's Town Hall.
Peel is a small town and everything is a 5-10min walk from the waterfront.
- Peel Castle, (down the waterfront, around and out to St. Patrick's Isle). Perhaps the main attraction in Peel, in terms of tourism. The 1000+ year-old tower was once used by monks to hide from invading Viking hordes and the castle ruins surround it. The included audio-guide takes roughly an hour to complete fully. £2.50 includes audio guide. edit
- House of Manannan Heritage Centre. Telling the story of Manx nationhood, it takes the visitor through the Celtic, Viking and Maritime traditions that have shaped the Isle of Man. It was declared British Museum of the Year and has won an award by the Society for the Interpretation of Britain’s Heritage. The award-winning harbour-side building is designed in sympathy with other buildings on the quay is an extension of the town's railway station. edit
- Manx kippers are supposed to be the best in the world, and even if you're not personally fond of smoked herring, don't you know someone who deserves a special smoky, fishy delivery back home? Moore's Kipper Yard will be happy to help you post a kipper-gram to a lucky friend.
- Harbour Lights Cafe, (on the waterfront). Has manx kippers for lunch or dinner. edit
- Davison's Ice Cream, (on the promenade not far from the castle). A well-known award-winning delicious ice cream shop. Has another location in Douglas. edit
