Something for everyone: Tram rides are fantastic, the Trams are immaculate & the kids are kept amused, interested & can then let off steam by running around the woods & play park too. + after the initial outlay, your ticket lasts for 12 months :-) BRAVO: 10 out of 10

The forties weekend is awesome. A great attraction for enthusiasts of the 1940's. Vintage costumes for sale and parades of wartime vehicles.

The Crich Tramway Nuseum will take you on a visit to yesterday and how our Grandparents travelled. Set in the Derbyshire Countryside the Museum has a variety of running and static exhibits from various eras, including several from Blackpool (including when we visited one that was a standby for the modern Blackpool trams). When you visit make sure you sign... More

If you buy a ticket for this Attraction, you get free entry for a year (apart from a few dates when they have special weekends). it's great value for money. Also dogs are welcome at this venue. Looking forward to visiting again when they open in March. Shops, tearooms and pub all available. I went for Halloween and was lovely... More

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
