Sailing across to the Isle of Man meant we could pack the car with everything we needed, even the bikes!

No cramped seats, and lots of room to walk around…so nice to just relax and enjoy the journey!

Travel to the Isle of Man in style... We love having the freedom to explore at our own pace. So being able to pack the car with all our gear (plus the dog!) and simply drive onto the ferry was just perfect. With so much space to sit back and relax, we arrived in the capital, Douglas, refreshed and ready to go – and with no luggage fees we’d brought everything we needed with us!

A certain magnetism draws visitors to the Isle of Man.

WELCOME As much as our epic and eclectic mix of Viking and Celtic past intertwines with evidence of the traditional Victorian seaside holiday heyday. A sense of adventure combines with a desire to unravel the mystery and discover what lies under the misty cloak that surrounds this British Isle nestled between Ireland, England, Scotland & Wales, which as legend would have it only exists thanks to a giant who threw a chunk of Ireland at the Scottish - it missed and landed in the Irish Sea forming ‘Mann’. So stand upon this legendary place, packed full of fascinating heritage and folklore, with the wind blowing in your hair. Listen to the captivating stories this sea-bound kingdom has to tell. See the epic sky unfold above you and waves crashing below.

As you reach out to touch the natural environment, you can almost taste the local produce that’s being crafted in traditional artisan practice, ready to be served.

Extra Sensory Viking Longboat Races! An annual event which is one of the highlights of the Manx event calendar. Teams of ten rowers race against each other in traditional Viking longboats in Peel Harbour.

Peel Castle, PEEL A kindled fire burns as the consuming mist obscures and shrouds the porpoise stone walls of the imposing fortress. Moddey Dhoo, an obsidian dog, as big as a calf with eyes like pewter plates, pads down the once guarded passages. An imposing fortress where the Pagan Lady is laid to rest, its interior, a dank mix of decapitated towers, defensive viewpoints and the watery graves of shipwreck victims.

THE MAKING OF MANN


With the Island’s appeal, it’s no wonder the Vikings descended from their menacing dragonships and settled here. To this day, it still remains an attractive destination for modern day explorers. Medieval fortresses dot the Island, a ruined castle on the Isle of St. Patrick where tales of Vikings, monks, and a ghost dog abound. Storm the village of Cregneash, where people live in thatched cottages, speak the native Manx language and practice traditional trades and crafts. The Island’s strong Viking heritage is prominent, awash in dramatic marbled colour and the salty scent of the sea. Etched deeply into the gripping landscape lives the memories of the Vikings, beyond the Islanders' traditions and the surviving archaeological Viking sites, the Island’s stone crosses and relics are hidden deep within its earth, in graves and burial-mounds.

THE VIKINGS ARE COMING! Top Viking attractions House of Manannan, PEEL Begin your Viking trail at the House of Manannan, march through the centre, guided by the haunting voice of the mythical sea god, Manannan, as the aromas of the Viking era fill the air, soak up what life was like in a longhouse and see a full-size replica of Odin’s Raven longship. HEROES, Manx Museum, 06/12/2015 – 16/04/2016 Discover the stories of nine Vikings who were legends of their time. Famous names include Eric Bloodaxe – last Viking King of York, King Cnut the Great, Harald Hardrada – the thunderbolt of the North and the Isle of Man’s own legendary Godred Crovan also known as King Orry.

Discover the magnificent stone crosses dotted around the Isle of Man and listen to the stories deep within.

You Exhibit: They came from the Deep Blue Sea House of Manannan, 06/02/2016 – 10/04/2016 In April AD 1014 at the Battle of Clontarf in Ireland, thousands of Vikings were killed and the Irish lost a king, murdered by the leader of the Manx Vikings. The battle is described in many early manuscripts and sagas and it is these tales that provide the inspiration for Danish artist, Susanne Thea’s exhibition of prints. Castle Rushen, Castletown Jutting out its jaw and casting a suspicious eye on the villagers below, this medieval fortress protected and commanded the former seat of the Kings and Lords of Mann, with the Castle’s oldest part dating back to the time of Magnus, last Norse King of Mann.

Tall tales + Trails Celtic Gods, fairies and folklore figures haunt the breathtaking corners of the Isle of Man, concealing themselves in the many hidden alcoves of the Island. Steer around the coiled lanes where the trees that line the streets are adorned with trinkets and tokens left by the Mooinjer Veggey (the little folk), you’ll find peculiarly named streets as well as the Fairy Bridge.

TALL TALES & FAIRY TRAILS


“Themselves” upon the mountains. “Themselves” that haunt the plain, That sparkle through the fountains And laugh among the rain. Greeting! Greeting! Singing in the rain, Laughing in the mountains Greet you once again. Josephine Kermode, A Fairy Greeting 1911

THE LITTLE PEOPLE's ISLE OF MAN Ruled by Manannan, the Celtic sea god, a misty cloak slowly swirls around the Island shrouding it from invaders when in need of protection. Manannan’s wife, Fand, the ‘Queen of the Fairies’, flutters around the mist covered hills, casting her gaze on the villagers below. Begin your journey of magical wonder by crossing the Fairy Bridge - a quaint old stone structure that's said to be home to the little folk, locally known as mooinjer veggey. Don't forget to give them a wave as they shelter beneath, and wish them good morning or evening - unless you're prepared to suffer the consequences! Continue your enchanted adventure and you’ll find tales of giants, fairies and brownies which are said to intervene with the lives of ordinary people. These folklore stories and the history that follows are carefully safeguarded by the Manx people to ensure the Island doesn’t lose any of its unique charm or character. Although times have changed, many of the original customs and superstitions live on.

One of the best ways to explore our Island’s continual coastline, valleys and uplands is on foot and whatever time of year you choose to visit, we have a range of walks to suit all ages and abilities.

10

Scale the scenic path of Peel Hill, climbing up to Corrin's Folly at the summit, its path will take you into the clouds. Sit in the sunshine at the top of the hill and watch basking sharks laze in the inky waters below. Take a path at random, follow it and pause to admire breathtaking waterfalls or explore a ruined Victorian watermill, before descending towards the sea beneath a canopy of trees, with ferns and aromatic wild garlic growing on the riverbank. The spine of the Island mainly consists of springygrass moorland, while the coastline is punctuated with cliffs, chasms and coves.

#cometoyoursenses

Head towards the cliff-top path around the south-west corner of the Island, with wonderful views across the Sound to the Calf of Man, an uninhabited islet. Wherever you wander you’ll see spectacular scenery in all directions and views dotted on the horizon of all four Kingdoms including Ireland’s Mountains of Mourne, the Cumbrian Mountains of the Lake District and the Welsh Mountains of Snowdonia, the toughest decision you will have to make is where do you start.

Sit back, relax and travel the lofty heights and through the low glens of our Island. Whichever mode of transport you choose; electric, horse drawn or steam, nostalgia’s guaranteed on every ride.

#cometoyoursenses

A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME


With our impressive network of heritage railways, you don’t have to be an enthusiast to enjoy each experience. As the whistle and hiss of the Isle of Man Steam Railway carries you away from one of the picturesque stations, you can’t help feeling that you’ve been transported back to a bygone era, travelling the 16 miles from Douglas to Port Erin where everything seems a little bit more civilised. Alight at one of the coastal harbour towns along the way and find secluded glens and sheltered beaches with perfect picnic spots.

Running from March to November, the Manx Electric Railway is another great way of getting around the Island. 17 miles of railway connect the capital Douglas, with Laxey and Ramsey, with two of the oldest regularly operated tram cars in the world. Many of our Manx heritage attractions are located close to the 60 stations and stops so you can hop off where you like and also explore the Island’s beautiful coast and countryside.

On the Snaefell Mountain Railway you wouldn’t want it to go any faster. As it climbs the dizzying 2,000 feet above sea level the views are staggering. At only five miles long, its engineering has stood the test of time since 1895, making it the only electric mountain railway in the British Isles.

13

WHY NOT travel like Royalty... ...take a ride on the world’s oldest horse drawn tramway (celebrating its 140 th year anniversary in 2016) along Douglas Promenade, there’s no better way of soaking up the sea views and sampling a slice of Victorian life.

Extra Sensory Our railways also provide a range of special events such as Santa Trains, Love Trains, Ghost Trains and Snaefell Dining events. Or why not try an 'Ultimate Driving Experience' and become a driver for a day? BUY one of our "GO Explore" cards With unlimited travel on buses, the Steam Railway, Manx Electric Railway, Snaefell Mountain Railway and Douglas Horse Trams, getting around is cost effective, as well as convenient.

Our Island has everything for intrepid explorers and adventurers, whether you love to splash, swim, row, ride, dive, climb, fish, scramble, surf or sail you can do it all here. Consider us the land of active opportunities with the terrain to suit all pursuits. Spend your mornings submerged in the big blue of the Irish Sea, diving and exploring the sunken wrecks and drifts, the afternoon on a Segway safari trail through lush forests, with ancient trees towering above you and the evening sea kayaking towards a golden sunset accompanied by seals and basking sharks. Whether on land, sea or in the air, adventure can be found everywhere. Get off to a canter and hear galloping hooves as you ride a horse across scenic stretches on sand, scale the cliff faces of our continual coastline or take a trike tour and be chauffeured round the Island aboard a three-wheeled trike. Without stating the obvious we know we’re a mecca for petrol heads and the road racing capital of the world, so if you didn’t know join us in May to June when our motorsport calendar is in full throttle

#cometoyoursenses

with the Tourist Trophy race or TT as you should know it, you don’t have to hurtle round the Island at 200mph, just inches from the tarmac, you can witness the race from one of the many vantage points or ticket only fan zones – we would advise not to blink as you may miss the action. Soar through the skies flying or gliding and see the Island from a different perspective, or take a leap coasteering. Don’t worry though, the Isle of Man isn’t just for the hard core and extreme, there’s plenty of family adventures to be had, try sailing on a crest of a wave, swinging through vast forests and traversing the treetop trails, cast off fishing from our well-stocked reservoirs, peaceful rivers or venture out to wilder waters on a deep sea fishing charter. With all these exhilarating experiences, one thing is for sure, the Island will definitely rekindle your sense of adventure.

A Q A

When's the best time to visit?

People visiting the Isle of Man should explore! The Island has amazing scenery and iconic structures which have to be seen, also the local Manx people are great and have so many stories to tell. Have you any Manx favourite places or hidden gems that you can tell us about? What makes the Isle of Man different to anywhere in the world? There are a few gems on the Island which I love. Niarbyl beach on the west coast has an amazing view and also I love this little place called Cornaa. Cornaa is a little cove up near Ramsey which is quiet and is great to hang out and jump in the sea. The Island has its own unique culture, from the local people, the Manx accent, cats with no tails and the TT! You can't find that anywhere else! We have so much freedom and it's beautiful.

Extra Sensory Really, really wild show! Expect the unexpected at Curraghs Wildlife Park, with animal encounters that you’d normally see in the darkest parts of the Amazon and on the plains of the Serengeti. Lemurs, Emus and Red Pandas roam the park and you can let your own little monkeys go wild in the Enchanted Woods and Adventure Zone.

Wherever you roam on our two wheeled wonderland there’s plenty of places to get your legs burning. Don’t worry though there is terrain to suit all aspects of cycling and mountain biking with way marked trails to suit all abilities, navigate through vast forests or tour one of the six designated cycle tracks, namely Ramsey, Castletown, Peel, Laxey, Port Erin and Douglas. If it all gets a little too much along the way, you can always take a breather and hop on board the Steam Railway or the Manx Electric Railway with your bike and recharge.

Q A

What’s your earliest memory of cycling? I remember riding at Ramsey BMX track many years ago, going up on a Sunday with my family and looking at the bigger guys go round and then going on my BMX after. What’s your favourite cycling route on the Island? What would you recommend to someone visiting the Island? Follow the TT course from Douglas out all the way to Kirk Michael. Just after Kirk Michael turn left on to the Orrisdale Road. Follow that around. Before you get to the main road, you turn left again on to the Bollyn road. That takes you up to the Cronk. Once you get to the Cronk head along the Jurby Road all the way to Ramsey. You can mix and match and do some lanes that weave back and forwards across this road. Once you get to Ramsey, hit the coast road via Laxey and back into Douglas. It’s not such a big distance – it’s only 2 – 3 hours and you take in all the sights of the Isle of Man. What’s your fondest memory of growing up in the Isle of Man? Fondest memory definitely the TT races. I obviously grew up with them. I think now I took it for granted. The last few years I’ve always been racing as they’ve been on and I realise now how much I miss it and how much it brings to the Island in those two weeks in May and June. What sights, sounds or smells really remind you of home? One of the best sights in the world is when you’re flying in on an aeroplane to the Isle of Man. You fly in on a clear day, see everything from the mountains to Douglas Bay and beyond to drop in to Castletown Airport and you really see spectacular little towns, big mountains and coastline. It’s really something that makes me proud to be from where I’m landing.

With more than 40% of the land on the Island unpopulated and uncultivated you don’t have to go far to feel away from it all, but you’ll always find company in the form of one of our many wild residents, who swim the seas, roam the land and soar our skies. Keep your eyes peeled and your senses alert for a mix of Manx Loaghtan Sheep and hares, nesting guillemots and kittiwakes, basking sharks, dolphins and a large grey and common seal population, who always put on a show. Our Island is the natural stage for all of these species, internationally renowned as a wildlife hotspot, you could say we’re one of nature’s great theme parks. The heather moorland, serene countryside, craggy coastline, bays and beaches provide the perfect habitat and a variety of visitor centres including Niarbyl, Point of Ayre, The Sound and the Calf of Man offer the ideal vantage point for witnessing the wilder side of our Island.

Wanna see wallabies?

You don’t have to hop down under to spot one of these cute little marsupials. Ever since a pair escaped from The Curraghs Wildlife Park over half a century ago, the North of the Island has become a successful breeding ground for wild wallabies, with numbers estimated at 100 and their population steadily increasing, they’ve already attracted interest from wildlife experts. The best time to spot these shy antipodean inhabitants is when they are most active around dawn and dusk. EXPLORE MORE ONLINE:

under the stars Dazzling night skies and the Northern Lights seen with the naked eye.

On a clear night, the Isle of Man sky is simply stunning, with many astronomical sights visible to the naked eye and even more can be discovered through a telescope or binoculars.

28

The Island is also ideally placed to see the magnificent sight of the Northern Lights on many occasions. The Northern Lights are normally only seen from northerly locations such as Alaska, Norway and Iceland, however the crystal clear northern horizon from the Island's north eastern coast means this fascinating phenomenon can often be seen. The Manx night sky is an amazing experience that will astound even the most experienced stargazer.

Home to 26 British Isles Dark Sky Discovery Sites, it has some of the darkest skies in Europe. With the naked eye you can easily see the Orion Nebula – over 1,500 light years away, our Milky Way Galaxy, and one of the Milky Way’s companion galaxies, the Great Andromeda Galaxy, whose light has been on its way to us for about 2.5 million years.

officially recognised Dark Sky Discovery Sites, the largest cluster in the British Isles.

Light pollution means that more than 85% of the British population has never seen a truly dark sky, but with a low population density and few built-up areas, the Isle of Man provides the perfect spot for stargazing. Howard Parkin, Isle of Man Astronomical Society
