I was a bit dubious not being particularly in to trams but thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Good to be able to hop on and off the trams as often as you like. Good display of trams in the sheds and exhibition hall. Also a nice woodland walk. We had pie n peas in the Red Lion - tasty and reasonably... More

Staying in The South Peak District this was an ideal day out for the family and the beautiful weather helped too. Found some trams from our area Newcastle and I didnt think I would ever be fascinated by trams but I was! spotting ones from all over the country including some from Blackpool the like of which still run. I... More

Good day out if you like trams with mixture of exhibition trams from various countries and eras. Three operating all day and you can have as many journeys as you wish. Interesting displays and exhibition hall. One tram converted for wheelchairs but limited journeys on this one.

I have been a member of the Tramway Museum Society since the age of 12 and visited Crich numerous times. In recent years it has been a depressing experience for reasons I have stated in previous reviews. However, there is a new broom at Crich - and boy does it show! Based on my experience yesterday, gone are the bad... More

Fun for all the family including the dog, which can excess all areas with the exception of cafés and children's indoor play area. It may be expensive on first visit but save your receipt and you gain free entry for a year. Extremely nice ice creams at a reasonable price. Excellent knowledgable and helpful staff.

Myself and my partner went here for a day out and we loved it. We were given an old penny to pay for our fare and were able to ride on the trams through the village. The conductor on the tram stood up to give a brief history of each one which was a nice, educational touch. We also had... More

Perfect for adults and children. Will be going again with my annual ticket. Trams were fun to ride. Spent over 3 hours there but will definitely go for the whole day next time.

Crich is approximately one and a half hours from our home so, as the weather forecast looked good we decided to pay it a visit. We were not disappointed.On arrival we were issued with old pennies to pay for our first tram ride. The conductor then exchanged them for tickets which we could then use all day. Although small in...

My husband is from the area, so he brought me and his grown up daughter here last week while we were on holiday from Wales and I must confess to being very pleasantly surprised. It is rare nowadays to find a 'day out' that actually lasts a day, but Crich was excellent. Beautifully restored trams, cheerful, knowledgeable volunteers, reasonably priced... More

I'm fortunate that Crich is only 12 miles from my home and so I've been on several occasions and to many of the special events. If you can get more than once, the admission price which seems a little expensive at first, is good value as your ticket is valid for 12 months including events except the 1940s weekend and... More
