Share your memories of the Isle of Man

In April we launched our ‘Share your Memories’ campaign, inviting both Islanders and past visitors to dig out their favourite snaps and photo memories on the Isle of Man.

With big trips on pause for now, we wanted to get people thinking about the special times they’ve had on our beautiful Isle (including their journey here!) and share these memories with us, so that we can share them with you.

We’ve received lots of wonderful snaps and have compiled some of our favourites into this blog, so even if you’re unable to visit the Isle of Man right now, you can still appreciate it in all its glory through the camera lens. Let’s take a look…

Rachel Singer, Island resident

“The Island has always been ‘home’ and now I can live here all the time. Thirty years of visiting finally paid off and this view of Port Erin from Bradda Glen is one of my favourites.”

Dennis Mawson, Island visitor

“The only cloud on the Island hanging over me whilst I was marshalling at Lanjaghan Lane during MGP practice on Monday 19th August 2019.”

Alison Harrison, Island visitor

“The view from Manannan when you know you’re on your way to the Isle of Man for another fantastic visit!”

“A favourite place to visit is Port Erin beach. So many favourite places to choose from!”

Shaun Sterling, Island visitor

“TT 2019 – the best week away I’ve had. The racing was amazing, the Isle of Man itself was a love and I found it hard to leave. It really is a magical place.”

Ramsey Bay. “Myself and my two children, aged six and two, woke up early one morning in October last year and made a crazy, rash decision to venture across to the Isle of Man from Liverpool. It was the best decision we ever made, we found a place we all adored and we talk about it every day at some point.”
