Island featured in 'world's longest' pub crawl

Takes nearly 68 years to complete

A number of Island establishments have been featured as landmarks on what's thought to be the 'world's longest pub crawl', planned by academics from Canada.

Scholars at the University of Waterloo have spent two years mapping the shortest possible route between almost 25,000 bars across Britain.

Nineteen pubs comprise the Manx leg of the tour, which starts and ends in Douglas - taking on Ramsey, Sulby, Peel and the south along the way.

The researchers have also factored in a drink on the Steam Packet's ferry routes between Belfast and Heysham.

But you'd best get your skates on - the hypothetical crawl, enjoyed at a rate of one pub per day, would take nearly 68 years to complete.

Neverthless, you can see the map for yourself online at manxradio.com.
