The House Of Manannan

House of Manannan OutsideSituated right next to the next to the new Marina in Peel is the House of Manannan, another one of the attractions of the Story Of Mann. The House of Manannan is an ideal way to spend some time when the weather isn’t great especially for those with younger children who may find the other museums a little dull. The House of Mannanan is a much more interactive affair.

Feeding The Ducks

St Johns ArboretumNow where else in the world could something as classy as “Feeding The Ducks” be considered as entertainment or something to do?! Well we don’t care, a trip to the Arboretum in St Johns to feed the ducks is as much a part of Manx Tradition as saying hello to the fairies. Besides it is a very pleasant (and cheap) way of spending a few hours on a sunny afternoon.

Peel Marina Bridge Webcam (Not Active)

Despite being only 4 years old the swing bridge at Peel Marina is having some serious problems. It looks like the bearings have gone and this means repairs and limited bridge swings for the rest of the summer. Peel harbour control will be limiting it to 5 swings per tide until the repairs have taken place. This is a temporary webcam and likely to be removed as soon as the bridge repairs have taken place.

Peel Promenade Webcam

This Peel webcam enjoys one of the best views on the Isle of Man. In the foreground you have Peel beach and promenade. Peel beach is one of the most popular on the island, perhaps only matched by Port Erin in terms of the number of people who will flock their on a nice summer day!

In the background you have the ever recognisable silhouette of Peel Castle. When high pressure is about during the summer months this webcam highlights why Peel is knows as sunset city, the red sky’s that provide the backdrop for the castle are well worth a view.

Basking Shark Tours


The Basking Shark is the second biggest fish in the sea, second only to the Whale Shark and MUCH bigger than the more infamous Great White. These docile sharks feed on plankton in the upper levels of the sea and the rich waters around the Isle of Man provide the perfect feeding grounds. The Isle of Man is one off if not the primary spot for watching Basking Sharks in the world with large numbers of sharks congregating to feed during the summer months (from May to September).

Peel Castle

Peel Castle is a castle in Peel originally constructed by Vikings. The castle stands on St Patrick’s Isle which is connected to the town by causeway (or as we like to call it, a road) . It is now owned by Manx National Heritage and is open to visitors during the summer. The castle was built in the 11th century by the Vikings, under the rule of King Magnus Barelegs. While there were older stone Celtic monastic buildings on the island, the first Viking fortifications were built of wood. The prominent round tower was originally part of the Celtic monastery, but has had battlements added at a later date. In the early 14th century, the majority of the walls and towers were built primarily from local red sandstone, which is found abundantly in the area.
