Tynwald Hill is about two and a half miles from Peel, at the village of St Johns. On Tynwald Day (July 5th, a public holiday), the National celebration of Manx independence takes place here, with origins dating back to the ninth century. The new laws of the land are proclaimed in both Manx and English and there is a country fair.

The Tynwald is the Parliament of the Isle of Man.

The Isle of Man is not part of the United Kingdom, but a Crown Dependency. Her Majesty The Queen is acknowledged as Lord of Mann. King George VI was the first British Sovereign ever to preside at St. Johns, in July 1945, and Her Majesty The Queen presided in 1979 when the Millennium of Tynwald was celebrated. His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales presided on Tynwald Day 2000 as her representative.
