“scenic trip”

Manx Electric Railway
Ranked #7 of 23 things to do in Douglas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The North of the island is well served with the electric railway and it runs through the country side in some very pretty places, you can hop on and off as you wish and is a much better way to see the bays and glens than using a car. I tried both.

This is a lovely relaxing way to travel round the island. we bought a day ticket and went on the electric railway to Ramsey and to the top of snaefell and also the horse tram and buses.would recommend anyone to buy either a day or week travel ticket as you can use it on all the various transport.

It was a very scenic way in which to see the east coast of the island from Douglas up to Ramsey. A tip is to buy trhe day pass which can be used on all public transport on the island

we loved our day out, saw the isle with no stress and hassle associated with driving, and went to places where the only access is by the electric railway
