  • Not many of em left !
  • What an ace place, unfortunately the opening hours are very sporadic. Check before you go they are open. Good views even if they are not open.
  • A quirky Victorian piece of history which is cheap (only a couple of pounds) and cheerful. The volunteers operating the Obscura are helpful, cheery and very knowledgable about the entire island. Lovely views over the harbour too, a great value place to visit on the Isle of Man.
  • Beautiful panoramic views
  • Wonderful view! Worth the visit plus free telescopes!
