 (Stephen Davison/Pacemaker Press International)

The Isle of Man TT offers some of the greatest racing you will see anywhere in the world, and with almost 40 miles of circuit there are plenty of amazing spots to watch the action.

Safety is paramount, which is why access to some areas next to the circuit is prohibited or restricted. Please make sure you pay attention to all signs and follow instructions from race officials and marshals.

Below you can find information about areas where access is prohibited or restricted, as well as downloading a list of the areas affected and maps and photographs clearly indicating where spectating is prohibited or restricted around the TT Mountain Circuit.

You can also download a detailed guide to some of the best vantage points to catch the TT from, how to get to them and information about the facilities on offer.

This spectator guide is courtesy of the Official TT Race Guide, available with the Official 2009 TT Programme, which can be order from the shop.
