Journey with us on the Manx Electric Railway from Douglas to Ramsey and enjoy the spectacular scenery along the way. This Victorian tramway opened at the end of the 19th century and carried hundreds of thousands of passengers each year on a trip along the Isle of Man's rugged east coast. On the way we'll brush the edge of dramatic sea cliffs, catch a glimpse of the world famous Laxey Wheel and pass by some of the most charming station buildings you can find.
Choose to listen to the informative commentary describing the sights along the way and explaining the history of this incredible railway, or immerse yourself in the uninterrupted sound of the electric motors as they drive the power car and trailer along the 17 mile route from sea level to 600 feet. The Manx Electric Railway is a piece of living history, and our international award-winning team can be relied on to bring you the very best action, with no fewer than five cameras capturing everything that happens on this fascinating trip.
