Hotel accommodation, bed and breakfast, self catering, camping as well as
homestay in private homes throughout the Island is available during the
TT festival. It is always best to plan early if you want to guarantee
somewhere to stay, since places book up fast. The
Department of Tourism puts together a Homestay List, but does not make
bookings. Check the list on their website (TT Homestay).
There are two ways to get to the Isle of Man, by boat or by air. Flights
are more restricted in space and it can often be very difficult to fly
in during such busy times as TT or MGP. Most come by boat from England
and Ireland, which is more cost effective and has higher passenger
availability. It can be very cheap on the boat if you come as a foot passenger
without a motor vehicle (Bicycles must be checked in, but are FREE). If
bringing a vehicle, BOOK EARLY and be prepared for the higher cost. Boats
(ferries) are subject to the weather and can be delayed or even canceled
in bad weather. Consider this carefully if you have a restricted time frame
for your visit (ie connecting boat/ferry, etc).
Watching the TT
The Mountain Circuit is made up of closed public roads. There is a variety
of locations to view
the racing, much of it free. Make sure you select
your location and get to it early. Many of the favourite spots close to
pubs fill up early. There is also the closure of the roads to consider.
Some locations can make you cut off till racing breaks or even stops. Be
sure you are happy with the restrictions of your location. If in doubt
ask a nearby marshal.
