Our Tramway Guide

The Douglas Bay Horse Tramway is the oldest remaining horse-drawn passenger tramway in the World, having opened in 1876. It continues to run the full length of the busy seafront promenades of Douglas, capital of the Isle of Man, with a fleet of its original tramcars dating from 1883 through to 1913.


The Tramway is operated as a heritage transport service and visitor attraction by Isle of Man Transport, part of the Isle of Man Government. It 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.
