Castletown, Isle of Man: 9 reviews and 20 photos


Since I'm interested in Art Noveau one of the things I wanted to see was the police station in Castletown, as I had read it was built by Mackay Baillie Scott. At first I didn't find it, or rather I had passed it without recognizing it . So I asked in a shop. The lady there had never heard of Baillie Scott, but she pointed me to the police station.
It is right next to the castle and looks like it's part of it. Baillie Scott built it in 1901 and maybe he had tried to make it look medieval. Only at the door I saw some of the ornaments typical for Art Noveau.
