An excellent trip out from Douglas to Laxey then on to Ramsey and return. Very friendly and helpful staff. Best to buy a travel pass to use on all trains, buses, trams etc.

This is tramcar ride from Douglas to Ramsey of some 17.5 miles taking about 1hour 15 minutes. It also connects at Laxey with the Snaefell Mountain Railway, another tram car. Again a great experience as the tramway hugs the coast passing some of the Island's glens, and giving views inland towards the gorse covered hills. So again you experience a bygone age, away from the hustle and bustle which is so much a part of normal life.
For a real bargain, buy an Explorer Pass which gives unlimited travel on the Steam Railway, buses, the Snaefell Nountain Railway, and of course this Electric tramway.

We went up Snaefell on the train from Laxey. The "conductor" on out upward trip was very knowledgeable on the views and pointed things out to us. It was a lovely sunny day and the views were brilliant.
