Festival of Motorcycling 2018

The Road Racing Capital of the World

When most people think of the Isle of Man they think of Motorbikes. And when most people think of motorbikes on the Island they think of the annual TT festival. But outside of that traditional event there are plenty of other opportunities to indulge your interest in bikes during a Manx Holiday.

The Festival of Motorcycling, which happens between August and September, is a prime time to indulge your biking addiction without the packed crowds of the TT. The festival runs over several days and gives a range of events to enjoy.

As well as the Manx 2 Day Trial and Classic 2 Day Trial there are the Classic TT, which is an ideal event to enjoy classic motorcycles and witness how the race was run through the years, and the VMCC rally. 

In the North of the Island there is also the Festival of Jurby to visit and enjoy, rounding off events and meaning, no matter where you choose to stay during your visit, there is plenty to do nearby.

The other advantage of the Festival is that, as the Island is quieter during this period than the TT, there is more opportunity to pick and choose your accommodation, from premium hotels based in the centre of Douglas through to more relaxed B&B locations in hidden spots outside the capital.
