Many people who have never been to the Isle of Man are not sure exactly where it is! The answer is that it lies in the Irish Sea, between England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, less than 60 miles west of the Lancashire coastline, and it is easy to get to thanks to excellent air and sea services.
The Island is a unique self-governing kingdom - a Crown dependency which belongs to neither the UK nor the European Union. It has its own parliament (called Tynwald), laws, traditions, culture, cuisine and postage stamps. But as a holiday island it is best known for its very agreeable and relaxed pace of life, along with a wealth of attractions and places to stay. And while other differences include the Manx language and currency (though English is the spoken tongue and English and UK currencies are accepted everywhere), there are also reassuring familiarities - such as driving on the left and road signs in English.
It is 33 miles long, 13 miles wide and covers an area of 227 square miles. More than 40% of the Island is uninhabited.
A fabulous quaint harbour and lovely sandy beach, overlooked by the amazingly preserved Peel Castle. An ideal place for a quieter holiday away from the busy Douglas city life. There are many idillic and scenic walks over hills,along riverbanks strewn with wild flowers around Peel. The beach is ideal for children and families. there are bistros and bars along the harbour. Peel aso houses a heritage centre and since the Island has a rich tapestry and strong Viking connection is well worth visiting. The island is famously known for the TT races, Manx cats, Kippers, and oldest parliament.
Miles of sandy beaches stretch southwards from the Point of Ayre until the port of Peel is reached, the rocks changing to red sandstone. This predominates in the construction of the ancient Castle and ruined Cathedral on St. Patrick's Isle. Here the first Irish missionaries arrived in the middle of the fifth century. A tall round tower, still standing, was built by the monks as a place of refuge from the marauding Vikings. This little isle was to become a base for Viking settlers and a fort of timber, or pile, was built thus giving Peel its name. Great devastation followed the end of Norse rule and it was the Early English Kings of Man who laid the foundations of the Castle and walls we see today, the oldest parts dating from the end of the fourteenth century.
A century earlier work had begun on the Cathedral at the instigation of Symon of Iona who had been appointed Bishop by Olaff II, one of the last Viking Kings of Man. The Cathedral, named after St. German, a former bishop, took over two hundred years to complete but was always in need of repair. The roof was replaced in 1697 but by 1785 the Cathedral had become so dilapidated that it was no longer fit for divine service. In recent years an archaeological 'dig' has attracted world-wide interest. Here has been revealed evidence of continual occupation spanning 2,500 years. Graves of the early Christians contrast with those of the later Viking settlers. One such grave is that of a Viking woman, now known as 'The Lady of Peel' whose remains were found with beads, a cooking spit, shears and workbox.
With its sandy beach, breakwater and harbour, Peel has an enchantment of its own. The narrow streets once witnessed the clandestine smuggling activities of the eighteenth century. Today, fishing boats and the accompanying herring gulls are ever present making Peel the centre of the Island's fishing industry. A quota system has seen the export of salted herring to the Continent much reduced in recent years but there are still some to supply the curing houses which produce the famous Manx kipper of unbeatable quality.
The 'Story of Mann' is based at Peel and is a major attraction for young and old alike. Constructed with a concentration on audio-visual displays, the centre takes visitors through all aspects of Manx history and folklore.
To the south of Peel the coastline changes to one of grandeur as cliffs of the Manx slates rise steeply from the sea and lead to the remotest part of the Isle of Man. The Glen Maye stream has carved a gorge in which is found one of the prettiest glens managed by the Manx Government's Forestry Department. Beyond is the delightful cove of Niarbyl with its 'tail of rocks' resisting the waves. The cove contains an old fisherman's cottage, known as 'Old Tom's', now preserved as a private dwelling. Southwards, Cronk ny Irrey Lhaa with its wild moorlands rises steeply from sea level to its 1,500 feet summit. Its name means 'Hill of the Break of Day', so called because men of the fishing fleet returning to Peel after a night at sea looked for the sunrise over it. The coastline continues until Bradda Head is reached while the Calf of Man can be seen in the distance.
There are familiar High Street names, local speciality stores, the Woollen Mills at Laxey, heritage shops, excellent new facilities in Douglas and many other traditional shops across the Island. The superb Tynwald Mill Craft Centre at St John's is one of several outlets selling Manx rural craft products made right here on the Isle of Man.
Children can really let their hair down at fun attractions such as the Wet Zone, Manxland, Superbowl, Curraghs Wildlife Park, Onchan Pleasure Park, and the interactive hi-tech Manx Museum and House of Manannan. Not forgetting beaches, swimming pools, Mooragh Park at Ramsey and Silverdale's boating pool, carousel, picnic area and wildlife and nature trails.
Venues such as the beautifully restored Victorian Gaiety Theatre, Summerland, Palace Cinema, Erin Arts Centre and many lively nightspots provide great holiday entertainment for all ages.
On the Isle of Man there's never a dull moment, whatever your age and interests.
