“Horse Tram...Classic way to travel.”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

I travelled on the tram way many years ago,now revisiting the island with my young family,we thought we'd travel again..
The children sat at the front with the driver,us behind,nice sunny day,was a great wat to see the bay of Douglas while waiting for our return ferry..
The horses werd great,well looked after & how they pull all that weight is beyond me?.
Great peice of Manx history still going strong...

“Tramway”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Fascinating, and a useful means of transport along the Prom. The horses seem to be very well treated, given rest periods etc. Their stables are open to just walk into and look around. Open cars in fine weather, closed ones if wet or cold. Even a double decker which is sometime put into service

“A must for Douglas!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We walked the length of the promenade and then got the horse drawn tram back along at the end of the day. There are various tram stops along the promenade so look out for the signs. Be sure to find out what your horse's name is. Ours was Robert.

“Trip along Douglas Prom.”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

My wife loves horses so spent a quick ten minutes travelling from the ferry terminal to the electric railway terminal. Very enjoyable in the fine weather. I would say the only negative part was the conductor's attitude. When asked about getting off at a mid stop and price he was rude and not very helpful.
