Best known for being a tiny tax haven, the Isle of Man is also a unique pocket of culture. Man has it’s own currency, stamps, laws, parliament and language and thousands of years of local history which has coloured the culture of today. Celtic then under Norse rule, the Isle of Man is now kind of part of the UK but kind of not. There are traces of Manx history all over the island, from Neolithic tools and pottery to larger Megalithic era tombs and Bronze Age burial mounds. Man is remote enough to be called unspoiled.

Despite the islands small size there are miles of coast alternating cliffs and secluded beaches.

Running at right angles to the history and culture of the place is Man’s involvement with motor racing and motor cycle racing.
