Caption for Laxey, View In Gardens 1894: Laxey's popularity with holidaymakers grew after the opening of the coast electric tramway. The operators of Laxey Glen Gardens were among the pioneers of today's leisure and theme parks. Visitors paid an entrance fee, the entertainments were free: tennis, quoits, bowling, croquet, hobby horses, swings, and brass band concerts.
