Things To Do

You'll never be short of something to see and do during your visit to the Isle of Man, whether you're looking for action packed fun or the opportunity to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside.

A true adventure playground for lovers of the great outdoors, the Island's varied terrain and extensive coastline lends itself perfectly to those who want to get their blood pumping.

Whether you're a thrill seeker, who wants to try your hand at watersports, a mountain biker keen to explore some of the best trails in the British Isles, or a walker keen to scale the challenging coastal footpaths – you'll find an activity to suit.

Don't forget to look out for the wildlife which calls the Island home, join in with the motorsport action in the world famous TT Races and Manx Grand Prix for racing fans, tour the TT course on a trike, hire a quad bike and journey into the heart of the countryside or try trail riding in the Island's greenlanes.

Getting around the Island is easy – why not travel in style on the unique heritage railways? Try going south by steam, north by electric or take the Snaefell Mountain Railway to the summit of the Island's only mountain.

And when you've exhausted yourself during the day you'll find an extensive year round programme of arts and cultural entertainment, so you can relax watching a play, a live musician in session or watching the latest Blockbuster.

PLACES TO VISIT

With a wealth of things to see and do, and many places to visit, you'll have great fun exploring the Isle of Man – the hardest decision you'll have to make is how to fit everything in!

Discover more than 100,000 years of Manx history and step back in time as you journey around some of the Island's most important heritage sites, ancient monuments and museums.

Follow the Story of Mann trail, which will guide you around ancient castles, forts and sites of religious and political importance, as well as burial grounds and Neolithic chambered tombs left by the Vikings and Celts.

With more than 40% of the land on the Isle of Man unpopulated you'll enjoy journeying into the countryside - the Island has 17 national glens, many of which lead to the sea, and a number of excellently maintained parks and gardens which are perfect for a family day out.

Wildlife enthusiasts will also find something to suit – the Sound is a perfect place to spot seals basking on the rocks or bobbing in the sea, the Ayres in the north is an excellent location for birdwatching and Curragh's Wildlife Park is home to wildlife from across the globe.

They learn, they have fun, they always want to go back. children love this school.
