The Isle of Man is fast becoming the destination for UK and foreign travellers. This is because it has so much to offer in such a small space and is easily accessible from the United Kingdom and Ireland.
With a diverse culture and fascinating heritage, the Isle of Man’s unique charm will inspire any visitor. The Isle of Man has long been recognised as having dark night skies, due to the rural character of the island. There are 26 official dark sky sites around the island and perfect for stargazers.
UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man is all about keeping our Island a special place to live, work and visit and we are the first entire Island Nation in the world to receive this prestigious endorsement from UNESCO.
The Isle of Man has a varied landscape with rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, hidden coves and spectacular Victorian glens. In spite of its size the island is not short on variety. The summer months have interesting and informative heritage sites, together with heritage railways that date back as far as 1873. Visitors who are over on the island for their first time, would benefit from a guided tour to give them an overview of what we have to offer.
