Plus, with miles and miles of unspoilt countryside and beaches, the Island is perfect for wildlife enthusiasts and adventurers.

The Island’s history, and even its name, is steeped in folklore and Celtic connections. According to legend, the Island’s name comes from the Celtic sea god Manannan Mac Lir, who protected the land from invaders by shrouding it in a cloak of mist. You can uncover the Island’s fascinating past by following the Story of Mann trail which will guide you around ancient castles, forts, Celtic crosses, ancient Viking burial grounds and sites of religious and political importance. With museums filled with incredible artefacts and activities, castles to explore and an open air working museum (Cregneash) you are guaranteed a journey through time you won’t forget.

The Isle of Man is a playground for those at home on, or even in, the water. With its stunning coastline, fantastic scenery and local wildlife, there are plenty of opportunities to discover the secrets of the Irish sea. Explore secret places and marine caves only accessible by sea kayak, take to the waves on a powerboat or enjoy a relaxing sail in a yacht or dinghy. See what it’s like beneath the waves with guided diving trips, where you might even be joined by a few friendly dolphins, basking sharks and seals.

If you need to relax and refuel after an action-packed day, the Island is home to an array of fantastic eateries, from seaside cafés and hearty local pubs to fine dining restaurants – wherever you choose, don’t forget to try our famous Manx Queenies, they can’t be beaten! You can also find a range of award-winning accommodation across the Island including idyllic hotels, rural cottages and farm retreats, riverside yurts and wooden camping pods.

Of course, the Island is incredibly proud of its motorsport heritage with the world-famous TT Races and Festival of Motorcycling taking place each year.
