The Isle of Man
Places to go and things to do in and around Onchan
Onchan is a great location for everything you need. It is within walking distance of Douglas and is ideally situated for travelling to other island destinations.
There are a number of ATMs in Onchan dispensing Manx currency, outside Shoprite Supermarket, at the Co-Op on Main Road and at Corkills Garage. ATM’s dispensing English currency are available at the Isle of Man Steam Packet terminal and at Ronaldsway Airport.
If you prefer to cook for yourself there are a number of shops that you can walk to. Shoprite (which is the local supermarket here on the island) is the largest and is located beside Village Walk. The Co Op is a busy little shop just on Main Road. Corkills Garage is on the mini roundabout at the top of Summerhill and is open until midnight selling a limited selection of food and drink.
Turn right on Main Road and Summerhill Glen is only a short walk away. In the 1980’s a fairy grotto was created near to the top end of the glen and this is still popular today, with its pretty illuminations. Further details can be found here.
For those who like a bit more of a challenge there are many other cycle routes for you to choose from, more information head to the Visit Isle of Man page here
There is a mini golf course and crazy golf course at Onchan Park together with a great children’s play area and boating lake. You can also hire go-karts and watch Stock car racing during the summer from Onchan raceway located beside the park. See here for activities and events in Onchan. Heading out of Onchan towards Laxey you will find The Fun Barn and Laserblast which are indoor play areas for children so great when the weather is not so good.
