Isle of Man travel guide

4.3
Specialty Museums · Landmarks · Historic Sites
Passionately proud of its history and culture, the Isle of Man boasts the world’s oldest continuous parliament and enjoys a semi-autonomous status within the UK. Islanders have little patience for tourism for most of the year, except for the few summer weeks when the island hosts the world-famous Tourist Trophy (TT) motorcycle racing events. During the height of the season, nearly 50,000 bike enthusiasts bring lots of noise and a bit of chaos to the island’s lush valleys and rugged hills. To enjoy unspoiled nature and undisturbed silence, avoid coming to the island during the bike races, or simply escape deeper into the rolling countryside and away from the crowds in town.
