A real trip down memory lane. All very pleasant and informative. Reasonably priced tea rooms. Don't miss the Woodland Walk and some great wood carvings!

Visited as in the area - a bit out of the way but worth the effort getting there. You are given an old penny when you arrive to pay for your tram ticket for the day. There were 3 trams in service on the day we visited, a double decker with closed top, a double decker with open top and... More

We found it very good, Trams to ride on all day just for the old penny you are given when you book in.Also very informative staff who were mostly volunteers.A Pub and Cafe for food and an Old fashioned Sweet Shop plus places for walks and picnics.

Brilliant museum if you like trams. There are usually 3 running daily - plus one designed for disabled with a lift! You can ride up and down as many times as you like once you have paid your "old penny" which you are given on entry. Wander round the tram shed etc. A bonus while we were there was the... More

This is a remarkable collection of old working trams and track.. The site caters for the afternoon tea brigade but as a working museum is a real achievement. Well worth a visit.

It's a very interesting at the Chric Tramway Museum as have never seen such a collection of old trams in such well loved condition ( a pat on the back to all concerned ) it's a bit off the beaten track but worth the effort to get here, not cheap but it must cost a lot to restore all the... More

came as a family with a small child. the only good thing was the trams. the shops are very expensive and are not at good quality. but the worst was we went into the cafe for a drink and some food. where we all received food poisoning for the food made. the food wasnt fresh and the chips weren't cooked...

It is in an old quarry. A good length of tramline goes down the whole main street. Trams run up and down every few minutes. You are given an old penny when you book in, this is handed to the tram conductor in return for a day long ticket to travel. There is an old fashioned pub, an old fashioned... More

Last visited in the 1980s. Was great then, now even better. Visited this time on the 50th anniversary of the first electric tram to run here. A superb day with a cavalcade of 25 trams or so and a really intensive service. My 36 year old daughter was a bit sceptical at first, but went along with dad's promise that... More

We're regular visitors to the tramway museum as we make use of the great ticket deal that allows repeat visits throughout the year. Always impressed by the condition of the vehicles and really enjoy wandering around the large museum full of static exhibits. The volunteers all work hard to keep things moving smoothly and it would be nice to see... More
