Southern 100 Information


Hotel accommodation, bed and breakfast, self catering, and camping (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. During the TT, places book up fast. The Department of Tourism puts together a Homestay List, but does not make bookings. Check the list on their website.

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).
