Isle of Man Tourism & Visitor Guide
Welcome to Isle of Man!
The Isle of Man is located in the Irish Sea half-way between Britain and Ireland. It is self governing and while it is part of the British Isles, it is not officially a part of the United Kingdom. The capital city is the resort and port of Douglas. Every year motorcycle fans from around the world come here for the Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) race. The town of Laxey has its Laxey Wheel - a giant water pump. From here it's possible to take an electric tram to the peak of Snaefell. Peel to the south is popular and attractive, and close by is Tynwald Hill - seat of the Manx Parliament. Castletown is quiet and attractive and is the former capital of the island.
