IOM is known today for the bike racing and as a tax haven. For older people it was a holiday destination with fancy hotels and entertainers. In 1887 310,000 people visited for Queen Victoria’s  Golden Jubilee. A lot of that can still be seen on the water front.


Lovely places managed by fearsome landladies. So the story goes.
