Accommodation throughout the island includes self-catering apartments, B&Bs, family run guest houses, camping grounds, youth hostels, country cottages and chain motels, as well as more mainstream hotels, many of which overlook the Irish Sea.
Hotels in Douglas, the capital of the Isle of Man, line much of the seafront, boasting stunning views across Douglas Bay. The town is home to many top tourist attractions, such as the harbour piers, horse-draw trams, the Manx Museum and the Gaiety Theatre. Many hotels in this part of the Isle of Man are close to Strand Street, a notable shopping district, and the Summerland Leisure Complex, which offers a range of recreational activities.
Further accommodation on the island can be found in and around the northern town of Ramsey - the second-biggest town of the Isle of Man, known for its Victorian iron pier, harbour, long river and wildlife park. Other notable towns include Castletown on the southern coast, Peel on the western side, and Laexy to the north of Douglas, all of which offer a small selection of hotels and guest houses.
The Isle of Man is perhaps most famous for its TT motorcycle road racing, which dates back to 1907 and is held every year around the island at the end of May and the beginning of June. Hotels and all types of accommodation are always booked well ahead during the time of the Isle of Man TT, when around 50,000 visitors descend on the island.
