Located in the middle of the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man is a 221 square mile island almost equidistant from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Home to around 85,000 people, around a third live in the island’s capital Douglas while around 10,000 in the adjoining village of Onchan.
While the island’s trade is mostly with the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man is not part of the UK. It is a self-governing British Crown dependency and holds neither membership nor associate membership of the European Union. It also lies outside the European Economic Area although a special relationship ensures that Manx goods can be freely moved within the EEA (although people, capital and services cannot).
The Isle of Man’s strong identity is due in part to its independence and the fact that the Island is self-governing. It has the oldest continuous parliament in the world, Tynwald, which dates back over 1,000 years.
