The Great Laxey Wheel & Mines Trail


Discover the Great Laxey Wheel, a brilliant piece of Victorian engineering and the largest surviving wheel of its kind in the world. Built in 1884 to pump water from the Laxey mines, the mighty waterwheel stands at over 72 feet high and has remained one of the Island's most popular tourist attractions for over 150 years. Those who make the climb to the top of the wheel are rewarded with panoramic views across Laxey, whilst there's also the opportunity to enjoy the mines trail, discover old mine buildings and a chance to go underground!
