Travel and Getting Around
Whether you choose to fly or sail to the Isle of Man you’ll be impressed with how easy it is to reach Manx shores.
The Isle of Man has direct air links with more than 20 airports across the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Channel Islands. Flying is quick and convenient – with some flights from the North West taking just under 30 minutes - meaning you’ll have more time to enjoy your visit.
If you want to travel by sea, fast craft and conventional ferry services operate from the north of England, Belfast and Dublin. Journeying by sea is a great option for families or those bringing sports equipment to the Island.
Once you’ve arrived you’ll find an extensive bus network which serves the whole of the Island, or you can board one of the three heritage railways which offer a perfect opportunity to sit back, relax and travel in style.
You’ll be able to purchase a range of travel tickets which offer unlimited travel on the buses and railways as well as free entry to heritage attractions. These saver tickets are a great way of seeing the Island and saving money at the same time!
And if you want to take your holiday at your own pace you’ll find plenty of places to hire a car so that you can take to the open roads and explore to your heart’s content.
