Tourism in the Isle of Man

The seafront of Douglas was formerly a string of thriving hotels and guesthouses

Tourism in the Isle of Man refers to the tourism industry of the Isle of Man which has been an important element in the economy for over a century. In the early days visitors were mostly richer British families. Later, the island was the destination for working-class families, mainly from the north of England and from Ireland.

In the 21st century, tourism is rather different. Today it only accounts for a small percentage of the nation's GDP, replaced mostly by financial services. Despite the overall decline in tourism, a considerable number of tourists visit the island for the famous TT races, rolling countryside and beautiful coastline.
