Isle of Man
The Isle of Man is an ancient Island kingdom, at the centre of the Irish Sea. It has its own culture and traditions and although geographically not far from the UK it is worlds apart in many ways.
Thirty-two miles long by twelve miles wide, it contains scenery of breath-taking variety and beauty, haunting glens and valleys, long sandy beaches and nature reserves which contrast markedly with the rocky cliffs elsewhere.
You do not need your passport to travel to the Isle of Man, but it has its own government and a parliament going back over one thousand years. It also has its own coins and stamps, and local delicacies derived from both the land and sea. It is steeped in dream and legend, myth and romance, fairytale and folklore.
Reminders of an ancient and sometimes turbulent past are brought vividly to life in the Island-wide 'Story of Mann' heritage trail.
Unique Vintage Transport conveys visitors around the Island over forty-five miles of iron roads. If you decide to drive, there are over 500 miles of country roads to explore.
You will find that there is always something to see or do on the Isle of Man, and as the Manx saying goes 'Traa dy Liooar' or 'Time Enough'. Come to the Isle of Man, relax and enjoy yourself - away from the pressures of modern life.
