We took the train to see the beautiful views of the island. The kids loved it, and stopped at a nice cafe afterwards for refreshments.

Ideal for seeing the east of the island. Groudle Glen, Laxey and Ramsey.

The journey in historic electric trains (or trams) from Douglas to Ramsey via Laxey along the coast is well worthwhile. On a good day, try sitting in the open air car (but take some warm clothes and a hat in case the wind gets up). At Laxey, you can change to another line that goes to the summit of Snaefell, crossing over part of the TT route on the way. Good views from the top. Check timetables, the trains/trams are not as frequent as you might expect.
