“Very colourful and magical”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

A few days ago me and my family went to the summer hill glen in Douglas at night and it was beautiful. I loved all the lights and the pictures made out of lights and also the animation movie that was there as well. I suggest that it would be better for a couple or a family walk but your friends can also tag along if they want. Definitely recommend especially at night so you can see all the lights!

“Magical Glen”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

A highlight of our first trip to the Isle of Man was visiting the lovely Glen. We went on a beautiful sunny afternoon and decided to go back at night. First we walked through to watch some bike racing at the top which finished just as darkness fell. The lights came on and made a wonderful display..Blackpool eat your heart out...There are lots of hidden creatures and moving pictures and coloured spotlights pick out the trees in blue and red and orange. We loved it! It was also fun looking for fairy doors and , like others, we left some pennies for luck! It was certainly our good fortune to find such a pretty place to walk!

“Serene”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

A daytime place to chill and read, just to get away. And in the evening, the lighting is a nice little attraction and distraction.
Having seen larger elsewhere on my travels, this was kinda nice being in miniature.

“Lovely local walk”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Our hotel was at the north end of town & our walk up Summerhill Glen was great fun. It is lit up at this time of year but although not lit when we went, too early in the day we had great fun spotting all the figures that would be lit. It is an easy paved walk & very attractive.
