A suburb of Douglas, Onchan has the dubious distinction of once being the home of William Bligh, commander of HMS Bounty and the main character in the infamous ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’.
The visitor has a surprising variety of attractions, from seaside amusements to golf and sport. Onchan Park and Stadium has tennis courts, bowling, motorboats, karting, squash, mini-golf, stock car racing and a children’s playground.
Nearby are the beautiful glens of Groudle, Molly Qiurk’s, Calvary and Lourdes. Groudle – a deep, mile-long valley enclosed by slate cliffs – has a woodland waterwheel and the restored Groudle Glen Railway, which is operated by volunteers.
A pretty dwelling known as Molly Caroon’s Cottage is tucked away in Onchan’s Church Road – a fascinating reminder of how Manx folk used to live.
