Important Notice:  Due to the present Covid-19 situation and the on-going works on the Douglas Promenades, the horse tramway is currently closed. Development and implementation of education and conservation initiatives in support of the horse tramway, its draught horses and historic tramcars are also on hold for the moment. The Trust therefore is not actively fundraising at the present time.

Rest assured, the upkeep and welfare of the tram horses remains fully provided for by the Isle of Man Government.

The operation and maintenance of the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway (e.g. staff, infrastructure, horses, tramcars, equipment, pasture, consumables etc) are publicly funded by the Isle of Man Government in support of the Island's heritage and tourism.

The Heritage Trust raises separate charitable funds to support education and conservation initiatives related to the Horse Tramway, its draught horses and its historic tramcars.

Making a general donation to the Trust enables us to provide a range of support in areas where we believe assistance is appropriate and for the public benefit.

A single online donation of £6* or more qualifies for a thank you gift - please see below.

We're an education and conservation support charity. Some of the ways in which education may be 'advanced' in the context of the operation of an historic horse tramway are described in About the Trust, which also sets out our aims and objectives and highlights some of the initiatives that we've supported so far.
