Inside Tynwald


Tynwald claims to be the oldest continuous parliamentary assembly in the world, with a tradition of over 1,000 years of meetings being held. As an assembly first in Celtic and later Viking guises, the main business was not legislative i.e. passing laws. Visitors to the Legislative buildings are always made very welcome. There are a number of reasons why people visit the Isle of Man parliament: To watch a sitting -To take a tour - To visit a Member To watch a committee evidence session - To give evidence to a parliamentary committee - To use the reference library - To visit the gift shop and exhibition area. Scheduled tours are held every Monday at 2pm and every Friday at 10am. To watch a sitting from the public gallery, please see the scheduled sitting dates. For further details of the visiting options and facilities please click on the headings above or contact our Tynwald Administration Office on the general enquiries number, +44 (0)1624 685500.


One could be forgiven you were looking straight at Gringotts Bank from the Harry Potter franchise, when you're looking head onto the Isle of Man’s Tynwald parliament building. Being one of the most important and historic buildings on the island, I have to say that this unique building is one of the prettiest I have seen on the island and guess what, you can actually take a tour around it. Experienced tour guides are on hand to guide you through the building and with sessions happening once a month, depending on when you visit, you may be lucky enough to grab a seat in the public gallery, just to add to the experience. Scheduled tours happen every Monday at 2pm and every Friday at 10am, so if you have planned your trip to the island and want to take part in a tour, it’s best to prebook to avoid disappointment.
