Have been meaning to visit for a long time and thoroughly enjoyed my day. I remember riding on trams when I was young and this brought back lots of memories. There is so much to be seen; ensure you have a full day. A bonus on my visit was a display of old vehicles which were scattered around the village.... More

I've been here several times over the years and have never grown tired of it from the rides on real on swaying trams to strolling around the static museum and old style shops, plus lots of walking and playgrounds. They always seem to be adding things (unless that's my memory fading?).

ran out of time to actually go in the village but would like to go back one day it looked very interesting. I sat in a 1930 Austin car outside to have a photo thinking it was part of the village, and it wasn't, but the chap was very nice about it thank goodness!

Visited yesterday with my four year old son, who had a lovely time. Plenty of nice places for a picnic, although we ate a nice lunch at the tea room. The 'pub' is a bit limited and had run out of draft beer though - it's more of a pub façade with bottled beers. Had great fun on the tram... More

Visited the museum with my Daughter whilst on a short break in Derbyshire and we were very impressed. Well laid out, with easy access, big car park and with a large amount of trams both static in sheds and in a museum, a good number also in motion for a fairly lengthy ride through the site. Good food and drink... More

Really enjoyed this. Great attention to detail and the standard of renovation is superb. Lots of interesting stuff to do, both fun and informative. Great value as the ticket is valid for as many visits as you like for a full year. Definitely worth a visit

Old world travel on trams I used to ride as a "kid" in Sheffield before "Meadowhall" really nostalgic visit and include the "penny fare" for the tram. The museum worth a visit but access to all the trams restricted, good anyway. Restaurant bog standard, clean reasonable food at fair (tourist") prices plenty for young children and nice woodland walks, short... More

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
