Lovely few days traveling around the island we bought a travel pass which allowed us to travel on bus, train and horse drawn tram, the pass was for three days well worth it.

This is a must do on any visit to the Isle of Man. The rolling stock is well maintained and runs on time. The noise in the cabins adds to the feeling.

This is the second time we have purchased the travel pass which allow you take the horse drawn trams, the railways and buses all over the Isle of Man. Very convenient and inexpensive. Stringly recommended- a good deal
