Great Union Camera Obscura

Great Union Camera Obscura

This Victorian curiosity has entertained visitors for hundreds of years – offering a unique way to see the surrounding area and an opportunity to spy on fellow tourists!

The Great Union Camera Obscura is one of only four remaining camera obscuras in the British Isles.

Unlike other structures, which were built for astronomical purposes, the Isle of Man’s camera obscura was built in the 1890s purely as an attraction for the flourishing Manx tourist industry.

The masterpiece works by using a series of mirrors and lenses which are located in a revolving turret above a darkened room.

Views of the surrounding area are then projected onto a circular table which has been separated by partitions to give 11 moving colour pictures of the 360 degree view which includes Douglas harbour, the lighthouse and horizon.

Adverse weather conditions may interfere with viewing or prevent the Great Union Camera Obscura from opening - so remember when the flag is flying the attraction is open!

The Gaiety Theatre

The Gaiety Theatre

Steeped in history and tradition, the Gaiety Theatre is one of the finest remaining examples of work from the legendary theatre architect Frank Matcham.

First opened in 1900 the Gaiety Theatre has since undergone extensive restoration to ensure it remains one of the finest entertainment venues in the British Isles.

Boasting a year round programme of top class entertainment including shows, musicals, pantomimes, plays and concerts you’ll be sure to find something to visit for during your time in the Island.

Visitors can learn more about this by taking part in a theatre tour. These take place throughout the summer season and are led by knowledgeable theatre staff who will regale stories of the magnificent venue and show you the behind the scenes action.

The Gaiety Theatre also has a dark side. If you’re interested in the supernatural don’t miss the chance to visit the theatre on an organised ghost walk where you’ll find out, amongst other things, about the lady that’s said to haunt seat B14!
