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 per cent 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.
