All The Isle of Mans history spans through thousands of years and at the House of Manannan, this attraction very cleverly takes you on a journey through all of the years that are poignant in ‘Isle of Man' history. The House of Manannan in my opinion is one of the islands hidden gems that catch you by surprise, most definitely worth a visit, especially if you have the MNH's 10 Day Heritage Explorer Pass. One of the islands jewels in its crown is most certainly Peel Castle at St Patrick's isle. The castle was built by the Vikings and is a strong testament to the strong Viking link to the island. The island has a long history of rewarding its most favourite sites by featuring them on their bank notes. Peel Castle is currently seen on the reverse of their £10 bank note, but a visit to the actual site will not only be pleasurable but memorable too.
