The Isle of Man is known for its great outdoor spaces and countryside, as well as its ancient Parliament that meets at Tynwald Hill. Tynwald National park is a combination of these two factors and was opened in 1979 to commemorate the millennium of ancient Tynwald.
Divided into 3 distinct areas the park covers roughly 25 acres and includes a large pond where children can feed the ducks, a variety of ornamental trees and decorative shrubs. The site also has a specially constructed shelter and picnic area which offers a great view out over the south and west of the location.
After visiting the park you are in an ideal place to indulge in some shopping or grab a bite to eat with Tynwald Mills, the Island's only department store, being just around the corner. Alternatively you can head further west into Peel to discover more of the Isle of Man's history with a trip round Peel Castle or the House of Manannan.
