This illustrated guide to a short walk around Castletown has been prepared by Castletown Heritage to give visitors an insight into some of the historic buildings which are situated in our ancient capital.

The walk as described will take approximately one hour to complete and you will require to add to this period any time that you are inclined to spend in visiting the Castle and various other museums and buildings which are open to the public such as the Castle, the Nautical Museum and the Grammar School.

In addition to the ancient buildings, on the map in the centre of this booklet you will also see marked places of interest and personal comfort.
