The Blackpool Heritage Trust is a non-profit making organisation established in 2014 to promote the retention, preservation and continued operation of Blackpool’s unique collection of heritage tramcars. We aim to ensure that the heritage trams continue to run on Blackpool’s famous tramway; the first electric street tramway in the world, in perpetuity for the enjoyment and education of all.
In addition, we are developing a brand new interactive visitor attraction to showcase the historic collection within an interpretive environment, with the aim that this will become one of the jewels in Blackpool’s heritage crown. This will also have the benefit of providing a safe and permanent home for Blackpool’s heritage trams.
We encourage the operation of the heritage trams on Heritage Tram Tours, operated by Blackpool Transport Services, but we are not part of BTS’ commercial operation and we receive no commercial sponsorship whatsoever. We rely instead on private donations and the goodwill of our supporters to ensure that Blackpool’s tramway history is kept alive in the present day.
