Isle of Man

The Isle of Man sits in the Irish Sea off the coastline of Cumbria. Though surrounded by the United Kingdom, it is not actually part of it.

Find out why this island has a proud history of independence and strong sense of identity, through passports and postage stamps, taxes and teaching, language and licence plates!

From its natural wild places - including the beautiful valley of Glen Cornaa - to Castletown the ancient capital of Mann, see how the island has been shaped by both nature and people.
