The Douglas Promenade heritage trail is around one and a half miles long, starting out at the Jubilee Clock close by Victoria Street and finishing at the north of the promenade at Derby Castle and the site of the former leisure complex, Summerland.


Equipped with this handy guide you’ll learn about the heyday of tourism in Douglas; the first building on the promenade, the Castle Mona; the history of the magnificently restored Gaiety Theatre; how the Manx Electric Railway is one of Britain’s longest vintage railways and so much more.


Put your best foot forward on Douglas promenade with this great heritage trail.


Brochures available from Douglas Town Hall in Ridgeway Street, Douglas Town Centre Management at 13 Church Street, the Henry Bloom Noble Library in Duke Street and the Welcome Centre at the Sea Terminal.
