We used to look forward to our trips to the Glen. The night time illuminations were basic but magical in this setting. For the past couple of years though the illuminations have been going seriously down hill. I visited the Glen a couple of weeks ago and none of the illuminations were on or from what I could see even in place. Such a shame for what must be a cheap and popular attraction to run.

The Isle of Man is known for its glens, large areas of broad leafed woodland. Summerhill Glen is a tranquil glen right on the edge of Douglas that runs from Governors Bridge on the TT course at the top end to Summerhill Road at the northern part of Douglas Promenade heading towards Onchan.

It can be entered through the green arched gate approximately 50 metres from the bottom of Summerhill Road. It is a web of footpaths leading through trees and shrubs.

Inside the glen lie wooden animal seats carved out for children, a gnome and mushroom hill, and even illuminations that are turned on during the tourist season. Guarding the coast side entrance to the glen are two old canons peeking through the turrets.

This glen is a beautiful place with streams and large pools of water and is worth a brisk visit whatever the season.
