Failt ort, Welcome...

Douglas Bay Tramway Heritage Trust is an Isle of Man charity established to help promote and support the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway, its draught horses and its historic tramcars, with a focus on advancing education through conservation.


The Douglas Bay Horse Tramway is the oldest horse-drawn passenger tramway to remain in service anywhere in the World, having opened in 1876.


The Trust raises money to provide financial and other assistance with the preservation and operation of the Tramway, the promotion, upkeep and welfare of its horses, the conservation of its historic tramcars, and much more besides.

About the Trust explains our charitable purposes and objectives and how, with your kind donations, we can help to support and develop the Tramway and conserve its heritage.




Douglas Bay Horse Tramway is now owned by the Isle of Man Government and operated as a subsidised heritage transport service and an educational visitor attraction by Isle of Man Transport (a division of the Department of Infrastructure).
