We spent the whole day at the village, and then did not see everything, we enjoyed the tram rides, the only thing which was poor was the food at the pub, but the poor lad was serving drinks and meals and then in his spare time having to clear tables, he needed more help.

Myself & my children had a really nice day here, we've never been before. My children enjoyed riding on the trams, watching the guys working in the workshop, the trams on display the woodland walk & carvings, the indoor play area, the ice-cream parlour, the sweet shop, museum & the craft activities available. Thank you for a lovely day. Carole... More

What a brilliant day out. Visited here with family including an 8 year old who throughly enjoyed it. The staff are enthusiasts who take pride in what they do and everything is just perfect. We are in the cafe there which was reasonably priced and good wholesome food. Will definitely be returning. The entrance fee allows you to repeat visits... More

Was pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed our day out here. Family of two adults, 3 year old and 4 year old. Loved visiting the old sweet shop and the old printers. The real stars are the trams, be this riding them, just watching them go pass or looking at them in the exhibition hal or service shed. Having... More

Went during the week on a fairly dull and cold day, but the weather didn't detract from the attractions. Our two Grandchildren loved riding on the different trams (can ride all day-long) and also seeing the static exhibits inside. They were fascinated by the old money - 1 penny and half penny given at the entrance to pay for the... More

Had a really nice day out here. The staff were helpful and friendly. The lady at the entrance advised us of the cheapest combination of tickets as we had seniors, children and adults so we saved around £8. There was more to do than I was expecting and we spent around 5 leisurely hours here. As many tram rides as... More

I have been coming to the tramway village on and off for 15 years and each year it just gets better - and it would have been 5* on my first visit. Lots of beautifully restored trams by many hardworking members / volunteers, which if your favorite(s) is / are not running that day can be seen in the sidings.... More

excellent views from the memorial tower in the village past the Crich Tramway Museum, were you can call at a quaint log cabin coffee shop and ice-creams lots of history worth a visit before visiting the museum. Lovely village too
