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.
We hope that when you
have completed the walk and returned to the town centre you will
be delighted to have found a little of our past history and we hope
that you will be encouraged to explore further and spend more time
