Douglas has been listed in number one position in a list of the top ten
seaside towns in Britain. The list, on the Times Online website, describes
Douglas as 'built along a great sweeping bay' and 'gateway to the fascinating
'abroadness' of the Isle of Man'.
The Island is ahead of Grange-over
Sands, which is described as 'the perfect old-fashioned resort' in second place
and Llandudno which is praised for its 'unmatched seaside architecture' in
third. Well known resorts such as Scarborough and Torquay are listed in
5th and 8th place respectively.
