Location of Ginger Hall in Isle of Man

Ginger Hall is an uphill left-hand bend following Sulby Bridge[1] on the Isle of Man TT course, a traditionally popular[2][3] spectator and photographer vantage point[4][5][6] with views of motorcycles approaching from Sulby Bridge and exiting towards Kerrowmoar.[3] Situated on a corner-junction, the adjacent Ginger Hall Hotel dates from the mid-19th century[7] and offers refreshments and access to another major viewing area at the Bungalow close to the summit of Snaefell mountain via the B8 Claddagh Road and the A14 Sulby Road.[8][9]
