“LIVING HERITAGE ON RAILS”

Manx Electric Railway
Ranked #2 of 44 things to do in Douglas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 18, 2012

This historic form of transport has been lovingly maintained for over a century and is a must for all visitors to the Isle of Man. It travels from Douglas, the Island's capital, via fantastic coastal scenery via Laxey (from where you can catch the Snaefel Mountain Railway) to Ramsey in the north.
