The Isle of Man is often described as a different kingdom and it is true - wherever you are, whatever the weather visitors will find something to entrance and delight. Myths and legends abound and historical buildings reflect a past painted by Celts, Vikings and Norsemen. Journeys on heritage railways, walks in glens and sightings of the abundant wildlife are just a few of the joys of being on this lovely island. Visit the House of Manannan, Celtic god of the sea, and let him guide you through its fascinating history and traditions.

Life During a Coronavirus Pandemic: Week 80 off to Albania
During week 80 of the coronavirus pandemic news of COVID-19 cases and other related issues take a back seat to the petrol crisis. There is enough petrol to fill our tanks but a huge shortage of drivers. We are encouraged by our Prime Minister not to panic buy but thousands of motorists do just that, constantly filling up their cars and any other receptacle they can lay their hands on. Petrol stations across the country are closed due to lack of fuel and long queues outside those that are open block roads and cause chaos. To add to our misery, Insulate Britain supporters try to further their cause by blocking approach roads to motorways preventing people getting to work and delaying deliveries of vital supplies. This is such a minor issue in the grand scheme of live right now in England that it provokes anger rather than support.
