TT visitor numbers increased by 4% this year

Tue, 24 Sep 2019


TT fans helped generate over £27.1 million to the Manx economy this year.

New statistics show significant increases in both visitor numbers and their average spend.

Over 46,000 people visited for this year's event - that's an increase of 4% from last year.

The average visitor stayed for 6.8 days - and spent over £801.

Laurence Skelly MHK, Minister for Enterprise, commented: ‘While it is always fantastic to see visitor numbers increase for the TT Races, what is particularly interesting this year is the volume of people who have previously visited the TT – almost two thirds. This figure shows the enduring popularity of the event and the need to invest in new features and developments to sustain this continued interest. This should also include consideration of all-weather entertainment and year round attractions.
