Thoroughly enjoyed our trips on the tramway. The horses seemed to be well cared for (they only do a set time) Good way to link the steam and electric trains - or just to go along the prom!

The Tramway runs the length of the bay and is very popular with holiday makers and locals. The old tram does shake and rattle but saves a walk into the town centre

We used the horse tram to get from the ship to our hotel, It was good to learn that the horses only have to do two return trips per day, and that they are sent to a home for their retirement when too old for further duty. It is amazing how calm they are in heavy traffic.

I bought an Explorer Ticket for myself and my daughter aged 9 and was happy to learn that she would be included on my ticket because she was under 15 years old so for the grand sum of 16 pounds we travelled the whole day by steam train, bus, horse tram and electric train from Port Erin to Ramsey and back jumping on and off all modes of transport and we had a fantastic day together and I really thought that this was just the best value ever and worth every penny of it.
