Good value for money. Food and drink are good value for money. It is easy to spend the whole day here, to travel on the various trams

The attraction is okay but definitely not worth the money if you have kids older than 4 years (because they charge £8 for kids +4 years,£13 for adults ). They claim that the tickets are for an year. The frequency of the trams should definitely increase on busy days so as to avoid lengthy queues. The tram staff were unfriendly... More

Went to Crich the entrance fee (£13 per person) allows you to come back as many times as you wish during the year ,today it was celebrating the war / 1940,s. Lots of people had made the effort to dress up all ages ,plenty of cars bikes and trucks. Entertainment in the hall was very good where else can you... More

I was a bit sceptical about the length of time we would spend here as it didn't appear to have too much to see. However we had a nice lunch in Rita's Tearooms and looked around the museum and went on our first tram ride. You get a penny or half penny to ride the tram and you can hire... More

Had a great day riding on the trams. Friendly conductors and drivers. Unfortunately really let down by the food, overpriced and poor quality. Plus they had run out of half of the things on the menu! Will go again but take a picnic

We go to Crich Tramway Village regularly as it's a lovely relaxing family day out with lots to do indoors and outdoors. They have recently refurbished some parts including the soft play area and the café and the food in there is great.

I'm old enough to remember this from of public transport so I took 2 of my grandsons for them to sample the experience. Cool!!! Great!!! That was their reaction after nearly 5 hours there and we still didn't see it all. Some of the trams are open topped so it would be wise to pick a day when you expect... More

We took our 3 years old grandson here for the day on the first day of the season this year. It is excellent value for money, under 4's go free and dogs are welcome. There are trams to ride, outdoor and indoor play areas, wooden carvings along a nature trail. I imagine the nature trail will look beautiful in the... More

A group of us in Morgan sports cars went to Crich today, and were really looked after by the staff, mainly Phil.... whose enthusiasm for Crich was without bounds. Definitely a must-go-again-soon sort of place.

We have been to Crich Tramway Village before and enjoyed it so much came back again. This time, most of the local schools were still in term time and therefore it was a little quieter with fewer trams running than last time. This didn't do anything to spoil the experience and if you pace yourself, you can easily spend the... More
