Fun ride on horse drawn tram. Would have been better if weather was summery but still great experience. Very regular and value for money.

This service is wonderfully run, the horses are treated well and definitely know their way along the prom. Its a lovely way to see the beautiful promenade of Douglas. It runs from the Welcome Centre end upto where the Electric Tramway starts and it was v cheap.

Very pleasant to ride along to the clip-clop of the horse. You see so much more at this pace. We were very pleased to see how well cared for are the magnificent horses. We were told they have 30 horses, and each horse only does four trips before getting a long rest. We also wanted to visit the Home for... More

Surprising how long it is along the promenade, so this service came in handy when we arrived back on electric train at far end of the bay. Relaxing way to see out to sea and along the promenade.

This way of travel to the electric train was a novelty but certainly saved walking. We felt sorry for the horse but the still plodded on.

Used this service on our visit to Douglas paid £5.70 and you could use the tram as much as you wanted for the day. Horses very well cared for and an excellent pub at the terminus. A lovely drive along the seafront

What a good service from the steam train terminus into the center of Douglas. The horses appear to be able to ignore red lights but we couldn't see why ! The carriage isn't accessible for the disabled or people with limited mobility

This is a lovely way to travel round the bay, which must be about 2 miles., for a small charge of £3.. These tram horses are really gentle giants. We never get fed up riding the tram.
