Why not show your support for retaining the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway, with horse-drawn original tramcars running the full length of Douglas promenades, by subscribing to our List of Friends.

Maintaining a working role for heavy horses (in our case Clydesdales and Shires) is also an important element of their equine breed conservation.

ABOUT US

Friends of Douglas Bay Horse Tramway is an independent news and information service established in September 2014 to campaign for the continued operation of the world's last remaining 19th century original horse-drawn passenger tramway, running along the seafront promenades of Douglas, capital of the Isle of Man, since 1876.
 

The Tramway forms an intrinsic part of the Island's heritage offering to visitors; it is an icon for both Douglas and the Isle of Man, part of the nation's identity.
