“Great experience”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Very much an old tram trip, in old style carriages. Nice to travel at a pace which you can see around you, and along the coast from Douglas to Laxey was quite scenic as lots of the time nearer the coast than the road. We took the horse tram to the Douglas terminal. After going up Snaefell, and return we walked around Laxey, took the tram on to Romsey for supper then the bus back to Douglas as we had purchased a day ticket which covered all travel. Good day out.

“Trip to Laxey.”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

The trip was really nice. A leisurely run to Laxey in a tramcar running beside the road. Couldn't ask for better.

“Great way to see the island!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We love Manx Electric Railway. It's such a novel way to see the island. The route along the coast is breath taking on a beautiful day.

“Electric Railway”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Electric Railway takes you to Laxey and the Snaefell Mountain Railway - or if you want to go futher east it takes you to Ramsey. All well worth exploring and complete with lovely scenery.
