The Isle of Man
Discover the Extraordinary Story of the Isle of Man - the only entire nation in the world to be recognised as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Located in the heart of the Irish Sea, hop on a short flight or a hassle-free sail to arrive at an Island that is rich in extraordinary nature, with an ancient and compelling history and a uniquely vibrant culture.
In the far North lies a town of hidden delights, where secret coves wait and strange creatures roam. Cloaked by emerald hilltops, sapphire waters and scenic roads there is much to be discovered. Trace history through crumbling walls and lost exhibitions; let yourself free the past from its place, watch it play. Waves flock to the coastline, bringing tales of a world beyond the Irish horizon, uttering tales from a nest of Gaelic Tongues.
Nestled in the beautiful South, are the tiniest fishing villages. Fairy-tale beaches and lost glens litter both coast and land, igniting charm and character. Railway tracks carve the landscape, beckoning industrial masterpieces as they race through at full steam. A medieval castle lies at its heart overlooking the ancient capital, awakening the crack of gunfire from past rulers.
Westwards lurks the fragile remains of a forgotten community. Bound by the remnants of its intruders in the form of stone and sea, the place is submerged in history. A shadow of the mighty castle rides high above, whispering untold secrets from times before. Legends lay dormant ready to rise, awaiting the discovery of past kings of the North and the birth of a new kind. Caves align the mighty jaws of its coastline, awaiting discovery.
Far to the East a crimson wheel spins and a lone tower watches from the bay. Three legged flags fly high across the Irish Sea, bearing the Island with boldness and pride. Horses pound streets as the tram rises on the mountain top. The coastline wraps tightly around the land here, squeezing out hidden coves from every nook and cranny. Mystery bleeds. The land is rich in history and spirit, where all points lead to the old ways.
What an adventure lies in store...
