In the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company’s 190th anniversary year, it has been heartening to take time out to look back and reflect on our long and diverse history. In this blog we take a look back at our historic vessels.
2020 marks 190 years since the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company was established. In this milestone year, we feel it is only right to mark the commemorative occasion with a look back at some of the Company’s most significant moments, from our early days to more recent times.
At this time of the year, with the anniversary of VE Day just behind us, our thoughts turn to the dramatic acts of heroism that were shown by many during World War Two and the role the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company played.
The Isle of Man is unique in many ways, but one of our favourite distinctive features is the fascinating Manx folklore, legends and traditions that are intertwined into everyday life here.
