The Isle of Man is situated within the Irish Sea, almost midway between England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The regular ferry service will deliver you and your vehicle in just over two hours and for those wanting a more sedate adventure, the nearest UK airports will have you here in around thirty minutes.
For visitors wishing to capture the stars, The Isle of Man has recently become the best place to photograph the stars in the British Isles and we now have a total of twenty six designated “Dark Sky Discovery Sites” (awarded by the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council), the largest concentration of Dark Skies sites in the British Isles, and lying in some of the Island’s best beauty and heritage sites.
Also known as "The Motorsport Capital of the World", The Island has the best and most varied two and four wheeled events, and most of it is for free !
For those more energetic, the coastal footpath known as 'Raad Ny Foillan' will keep you enchanted for around 100 miles.
