ISLE OF MAN
Castle Rusheen Isle of Man
Purple and white flowers.. Celtic sites...intriguing castles...steam trains...horse drawn trams...even a casino.

Shrouded in misty waters between Ireland and Great Britain, the Isle of Man is an intriguing world of moody moors, stone framed fields and seafront Victorian manors. A feeling of enchantment pervades Man, and its capital, Douglas. The culture of the Isle of Man is strongly influenced by its Celtic and Norse origins. Climb through a series of villages, glens and cliff sides that are perfectly kept. Cottages with fuschia hedges, fields sprinkled with bluebell, yellow cowslip and black and white cows and bulls are on every hill. This is the "Jewel of the Irish Sea".

The head of state is Queen Elizabeth II, who holds the title of Lord of Mann.

The Vikings established the Island's parliament Tynwald, which is the oldest continuous parliament in Europe. They also gave the Island many of its place-names: Norse place names include the use of fell (mountain), rick/wick (cove or bay), howe (hill) and ayre (gravel beach). 

What to do on Man:
  1. Seek out four unusual museums: Moore's Traditional Museum in Peel, for a working demonstration of how Manx kippers have been cured over oak chips since around 1770; Leece Museum, which tells the story of Peel in historic photographs, the Regimental Museum of the Manx Regiment in Douglas; and the Aviation Museum at Ronaldsway Airport.
  2. See the Isle of Man's famous film locations (used in more than 25 films and TV series shot on the Island in recent years). Since 1995, the island has been the location of many films, from the hit comedy Waking Ned to the famous Thomas the Tank Engine movie, Thomas and the Magic Railroad. The best place to begin exploring is the south of the Island; starting at Cregneash you can visit the set of Waking Ned and just a short walk down the road to the Calf Sound, you'll find the location used for much of Treasure Island.
  3. Vintage railways - The Islands' mix of vintage electric trams, horse trams and steam railways is truly unique in the world and something every visitor should see. Each of these Isle of Man Transport services end within walking distance of the next, allowing you to travel from the south of the island to the north with ease. The Isle of Man Steam Railway is Britain’s longest narrow gauge railway. The 17 mile long Manx Electric Railway dates from the 1880s. The Snaefell Mountain Railway climbs from Laxey village to the summit of Snaefell, the Island’s only mountain at a height of 2, 036 feet. Horse tramsand miniature railways round out the transportation choices.
  4. Heritage and history - The Isle of Man is full of old churches, medieval castles, coastal forts, Celtic and Viking stone crosses and ancient burial grounds; Many of the sites dating back centuries. After all, the Story of Mann covers 10,000 years of Manx history. The earliest inhabitants of the Island have left many traces: the landscape is dotted with the remains of hillforts, burial sites and settlements from the Bronze, Iron and Stone Ages. The most significant of these are Cashtal Yn Ard (north-east), a Neolithic chambered tomb, and the Meayll Circle (south), a Megalithic burial site. Stone crosses – used as grave markers and memorials - have also been found in abundance around the Island, with the earliest ones dating back to the 6th Century.
  5. The Isle of Man enjoys a global reputation for the standard of its ‘Motorsport’ events. The thrills and spills of motorcycle road racing, exhilarating car rallies, dignified vintage motorcycle cavalcades and much much more, have been enjoyed by visitors and residents for over 100 years.

The national dish of the island is 'Spuds and Herrin', boiled potatoes and herring. This plain dish is chosen because of its role supporting the subsistence farmers of the island, who crofted the land and fished the sea for centuries.
