The Tramway Village is, besides a great and very entertaining day out for the kids, excellent value for money. The entry fee buys you a ticket that is valid for a whole year, and we've been making use if this offer for several years now. Besides the dozens of trams (beautifully restored), the running trams that offer free rides and... More

Let's be honest - it's a tramway museum and at that it truly excels. With a fine collection of lovingly restored trams, many in operating condition that regularly run with the help of a large band of enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff and volunteers. If trams are your thing then this is undoubtedly about as good as it gets - pay... More

This has always been one of my favourite family days out, particularly on theme days. There is something for everyone to enjoy and the trams are fascinating for people who like big toys

Been going to Crich Tramway Village for over forty years and watched it evolve into what it is today a very enjoyable experience. Not the cheapest attraction and really weather dependent but that aside its one of our favorites when we visit Derbyshire. Highlight of the visit is riding on the trams (different trams run on different days) and the... More

If you fancy trip down memory lane, want to keep the kids entertained for a day, have a bite to eat in a quaint cafe or simply ride on a beautifully maintained heritage tram then Crich has it all. Free parking, reasonable entry fee and stunning setting on the top of the Derbyshire hills make this a terrific day out... More

This is a unique little place to visit where you get to ride around on the old trams. You don't have to be particularly interested in trams as others things to see and do but tram rides and museum are really good. Return visit within a year included in price. Nice little picnic spots dotted in various places and you... More

Overall a good family day out. The kids loved riding the trams and they have a nice museum. There isn't a huge amount to do if you don't like trams but if you do, I would pay Crich a visit. I think they could do with more food options but this didn't really affect our visit

If you are interested in trams, this is the place to go. It is quite a big museum with a large assortment of varied trams collected over time. It poured with rain when we visited, but fortunately most of the exhibits are under cover. There is the possibility of taking a one penny ride,( you are given a ticket )... More
