Discover more than 10,000 years of history and step back in time as you journey around some of the Island’s most important heritage sites.
The Isle of Man has a unique and varied heritage which is as evident today as it was many thousands of years ago.
You can uncover the Island’s fascinating past by following the Story of Mann trail which will guide you around ancient castles, forts and sites of religious and political importance.
Visit one of Europe’s best preserved Medieval castles, Castle Rushen, to find out how the Kings and Lords of Mann lived or Peel Castle in the west where you can follow in the footsteps of Christian missionaries and Viking warriors.
There’s also the opportunity to find out what life was like for fishermen, crofters and miners by visiting the world’s largest working waterwheel in Laxey ,which used to pump water to the mines, or Cregneash which is a living, working illustration of life in a typical 19th century Manx upland crofting community.
Look out for a number of special events that take pace at the heritage sites throughout the year.
