“A must whilst visiting the island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Very nostalgic and a great way to get from one end of the promenade to the other but be very careful if boarding the tram on the promenade as the cars drive alongside the tram when you are getting on and off. Not much room for legs for the taller people in the world!

“Meander the Promenade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Connecting the north and south ends of Douglas bay and going along the front and promenade it's a nice way to meander along and taking in the views, experiencing a mode of transport of a bygone era, suitable for all 3 or4 generations of family.

Wonderful mode of transport - the horses are all so lovingly caring for both in their working life as well as retirement.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Horse Drawn Trams went up and down the prom every 20 minutes. They had open ones in the dry weather and closed in ones for the rain,
