Isle of Man Steam Packet Holidays and the Sefton Group have teamed up to encourage people to discover everything the Isle of Man has to offer through an exceptional package deal.

Until the end of May, visitors are being offered a return foot passenger sea crossing with two nights’ bed and breakfast accommodation at the Palace Hotel ♦ Casino for £99. The deal has been promoted via an advertising campaign in the Liverpool Echo and Liverpool Evening Post to entice north-west residents to make the short journey across the Irish Sea.

Get your fill of sea air and spectacular scenery while following the Island’s famous ‘Raad ny Foillan’ coastal footpath, or view the varied terrain while paddling alongside seals in a kayak. The Island is also home to a great range of golf courses, including the famous Castletown Golf Links located on the south-east peninsula.

For those looking for a more informative experience, the Story of Mann sites are varied and range from the world’s largest working water wheel in Laxey, to Castle Rushen, one of the best examples of a medieval castle in the British Isles.

Brian Convery from Steam Packet Holidays said: ‘Together with the Sefton Group, we’re able to offer this great value package to those seeking a short break, closer to home. The Isle of Man is an ideal destination for people to get away from it all, with beautiful scenery and relaxed pace of life.’

Sefton Group Sales Manager, Naomi Finch, said: ‘We’re delighted to be part of this fantastic offer. The Isle of Man is a lovely place to be at this time of year, and we hope it will turn more heads towards the Island as a short break destination.’
