The horses were a bit smelly but poor things worked really hard. Only disappointed they only ran at the weekend which we found out because they weren't there! Nothing we found in writing to say this, but plenty of buses. If you had a pass it made no difference as all transport was covered.

A bit pricey at £3 flat fare whether you travel one stop or go the whole distance, but it's so relaxing to be pulled along at just above walking pace with the clip clop of one of the lovely horses which all have human names like Keith and Bill etc.

All the horses have names on their collars, are beautiful big shire horses who trot up and down the promenade pulling enormous weight effortlessly. If you are in the IOM then you must do this.....don't expect speed but do expect a very genteel and enjoyable way of getting from one end of Douglas to the other. A really lovely experience.

This is a great experience, the horse tramway is the only one operating in the world (excepting theme parks) and was opened in 1876. Long may it continue.
