Flight was delayed - due to snow - but can't blame FlyBe for that!
Those looking for natural beauty, a relaxed pace of life and hidden gems will not be disappointed when they book their flights to the Isle of Man. As you touch down at Isle of Man Airport (IOM), you will be struck by the rugged beauty of this outpost in the Irish Sea. As soon as you set foot on land, your island adventure will begin.
Summer is perhaps the best time for an island getaway. Come in late May/early June and see the world-famous Isle of Man TT motorcycling race. Running for over 100 years, the island transforms into the road racing capital of the world over two exhilarating weeks in early summer. And with music and cultural festivals such as Yn Chruinnaght in Peel celebrating Celtic music, culture and dance during a lively summer, this is an exciting time to visit the Isle of Man. But there's something to be said for later in the year, too. When the rain falls and the chill sets in during winter time, the island takes on a mystical look, shimmering in mist and magic. This may be the perfect time to search for cheap tickets to the Isle of Man.
There are regular flights to Isle of Man Airport from various locations throughout Britain and Ireland, including Manchester, Newcastle, East Midlands and Belfast (Flybe), London Gatwick and Liverpool (Easyjet), London City and Dublin (British Airways), and Birmingham (Aer Lingus). With a travel time of less than an hour, book your return flights to the Isle of Man and savour the quiet and relaxation of island life in next to no time.
Rent a car and explore the island at your leisure along its stunning coastal roads. Or sit back and take the bus to your next port of call, with regular bus services to all corners of the island. Taxis are also on hand, with fares to the island's capital of Douglas costing around £18.
There are many family-friendly activities to enjoy on the Isle of Man with fascinating towns dotting every side of the island, including Douglas, Ramsey, Peel and Castletown. Wherever you decide to set up base, you can marvel at the sounds of the indigenous Manx language, converse with the proud locals, spot the three-legged symbol on the Manx flags and pet the Manx cats (just don't expect them to wag their tails). Travelling around the island is a joy, with a historical steam railway system in operation between Douglas, Castletown and Port Erin, while you can traverse the streets of Douglas in style by horse-drawn carriage. A visit to the Laxey water wheel is also a must, a marvel of engineering and the world's largest operating water wheel. Make sure to climb the spiral steps for wondrous views of the surrounding nature.
