“And the Laxey Wheel keeps turning, turning, turning, In Lady Isabella’s memory,
And while the water flows, The Laxey Wheel still goes, And the Laxey river runs down to the sea.”
Well what do I need to say about the Laxey Wheel other than, its cool! Its the largest working waterwheel in the world today, and if that’s not enough you can climb to the top for views across Laxey bay and there’s a Mine to explore! Oh and its even got it’s own song…
There is a car park next to the Wheel so it’s easily accessible, but this is a Manx National Heritage site, so is not free. If you’re a local I would highly recommend buying a Heritage Pass which will get you access to here and all of the other sites (Cost £22 as of 2020 and kids can get in free with their ACE card).
Go there, bring a picnic on a nice day, and enjoy!
