Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are closed and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events. While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like.

Great Laxey Wheel & Mines (2021)

The Great Laxey Wheel or 'Lady Isabella' (as she is also known) is the largest working waterwheel in the world. She was built in 1854 to pump water from the Laxey mines, a brilliant example of Victorian engineering. Today a climb to the top is rewarded with panoramic views across the Laxey Valley.
