“Good value and dog friendly”

Manx Electric Railway
Ranked #2 of 44 things to do in Douglas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Used the electric railway to get up to the mountain to watch the bikes, left from Douglas and was only £13 return. Really nice to see the sights and take a trip on something that was built in 1895! Also very dog friendly, dogs on the tram on the way up and back.

So well organized. Best souvenir shopping at the top of Snaefell. Roast pork bap looked fab. Nice view of Laxey wheel on right side as you go up, left as you go down.

Fabulous old railway with amazing views on the way, stop at Laxey and change to the Snaefell mountain train, or continue up to lovely old Ramsey...very nostalgic.

If you are travelling to the Isle of Man then you must go on the Manx Electric Railway(MER)this is an outstanding journey along the east coast from Douglas to Ramsey with some of the best views you will ever encounter,you can get of at Laxey where you can get the Snaefell Mountain railway up to the summit which is 2036ft above sea level,there you will see seven kingdoms,that being England,Northen Ireland,Southern Ireland,Scotland,Wales,the kingdom of Man(IOM) and the kingdom of heaven and if you are lucky to see it on a clear day then you will understand what i have just described,enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just sit back relax and enjoy the ride. Go to the high point of the island. Pick a good day, if you can, to better appreciate the view. Cafe at the top but we didn't try as it was very busy.
