Home to the world’s oldest continuous parliament, the Tynwald, they have always done things a little differently on the Isle of Man. There are beautiful lush valleys and rugged coastlines to enjoy, and crowds only fill this island during the world-famous Tourist Trophy (TT) motorbike racing season.
If you’re planning on visiting the island for the TT season then you need to book well in advance. Almost 50,000 people travel to the island at this time, meaning flights and accommodation can get booked up.
The best time to visit during the rest of the year depends on what kind of weather you like. There are attractions all year round, including Viking burial sites and Celtic stone crosses, forming part of the 100,000-year Manx history.
However, if you’re planning a visit for walking and cycling, wildlife watching or enjoying some of the island’s excellent camp sites, then the spring and summer are the most suitable periods. Avoid the high summer season and school holidays and you can find better deals on cheap flights to the Isle of Man.
You can refine your Isle of Man flight search options using the filter menu on the left side of the results page, and choose your flights by airline, arrival times and more.
