Manx Electric Railway

For the best coastal views there is no better way to travel then the Manx Electric Railway. It weaves its way up and down along the eastern side of the island. The sea is clearly visible for most of the way. The trams pass through countryside, glens and villages. It is a truly wonderful journey covering a total distance of around 17 miles. It is about a 45 minute ride from Douglas to Laxey and then another 45 minutes from Laxey to Ramsey. There are many interesting stops along the way, but most are by request and the conductor will need to be informed when he checks your ticket.

There are often two options for seating, outside or inside. The inside seats are nice if it is cold or wet, but if you really want to take in the scenery then sit outside.

Please be aware that the postcode is just to get you close, please pay attention for signage or check out routes in advance.
