Viewing from gardens
I know there is loads of people and pubs around course that allow viewing from gardens etc. for donations to TT Charities, air ambulance etc but can anyone recommend any of them or know anyone who is doing it we could contact. 2 adults and a 4 year old. We travel tomorrow and staying in Ramsey at Hairpin
Thanks everyone

RE: Viewing from gardens
I think if I was you, I would be taking a trip to the Conker Tress, between Glentramman and Milntown. Awesome spot to watch, although you ARE locked in for the day. Facilities are available.
You would need to get there early, i.e. before the roads close.
Distance from Parliament Square, travelling in the reverse direction is approx. 2miles.

RE: Viewing from gardens
If you have a four year old and the weather is iffy I can highly recommend Marown Church - they have loos and fab food but also a great play room upstairs in the church with loads of toys, DVDs etc. We were there a few years ago on the very long day of the cancelled senior and were made very welcome.

Conker trees is also good if the weather is fine, lots of room the little one to run around, clean portaloos and good value food.

Have a fab time Smile

RE: Viewing from gardens
If you are in Ramsey you could always try May Hill. There is a bridge to get you across during racing so you can watch on both sides and it has a massive park (loads of swings and things) and toilets. Not sure how busy it is during tt but my girls enjoyed 'watching' the Manx there.

As an alternative... On one mgp race day I marshalled at quarry bends and my wife took the kids into the wildlife park for the day.

Have fun!

From experience of trying to watch with a young family, I can recommend viewing from around Quarry Bends and the Wildlife Park. When racing is on the Wildlife Park is half price admission and is great for passing away those delays....

+1 on this, it's a good location.

On the day the above picture was taken, we ended up missing the start of the afternoon race because we spent too long watching the otters Smile

The big field on the left at the end of the Cronk-y-Voddy straight is good for spectating and there used to be food and loos available but I haven't been there for a few years.
