You can travel by air and sea to the Isle of Man from many locations around the British Isles and once here tour the Island at a your own pace.

The Isle of Man is part of the British Isles Common Travel Area. This area includes England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.  There are no immigration controls when travelling between any of the areas in the Common Travel Area and as such a passport is not required to enter the Isle of Man.

Located at the heart of the British Isles, the Island is within easy reach of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Flights operate to the island from many of the regional airports in the British Isles, or if you prefer to travel by boat then you can choose from ports in the Northwest of England (or Ireland).

You can check the flight arrivals/departures and latest news on sailings in our Infocentre.

So whether you're touching down at Isle of Man Airport or disembarking at the Sea Terminal in Douglas, welcome to the Isle of Man!

Once on Island the options for getting about are varied.  Take in the scenery from a bus, tram or train or plot your own route by hiring a car and taking to the Island roads.

The Island sees a large influx of visitors for the TT and Manx Grand Prix Festivals.  See our dedicated Motorsports section for more information to help plan your trip.
