I did not expect to enjoy my day out at the Tramway village but I am pleased to say I did. The site has been designed well and allows visitors to walk around while the trams rumble by or jump on and off them at the various stops. The furthest stop does not have pedestrian access to and from the... More

Our Church Holiday Group visited the Tramway as part of our tour of Derbyshire. We had a ride on the tram before going into the shop and my friends who had lived in Glasgow found a book showing all the trams that they had used to and from school and work. We had a great time and I enjoyed their... More

We don't have a car, and were disappointed to find there's no discount for visiting by train. You have two options, either travel to Matlock (trains up to every half hour) & get the bus (every two hours) or travel to Whatstandwell & walk, where it tantalises you by saying it's only a mile away-but up a steep hill. We... More

If you're a tram enthusiast, this is the place to go! There are so many trams for you to see and discover how they've changed throughout history. You're also able to have a ride on a tram, and get off at the other end for a walk, which leads to a war memorial which you can climb up if you... More

This museum is a very good day out.Although it might seem slightly expensive at first glance,your entry fee is for a full year not just for the day and you can ride on the trams as many times as you want at no extra cost ,there were for more trams there than i expected.The pie and peas in the red...

Wasn't sure whether to give this one a miss as read mixed reviews but despite the £30 entrance (1 adult and 2 kids) it kept us entertained for a good 4hrs - kids enjoyed the unlimited tram rides and the woodland walk, adventure playground, tram depot and exhibition hall. All the staff were friendly and polite. Had a late lunch... More

It must be about 20 years since our last visit. The trams are in excellent condition and amazing to see. There are several buildings housing the trams. However as a small person 5'3" you cannot see inside them only the outside a viewing platform would be nice to appreciate the workmanship gone into restoring the inside as well as out.... More

I last visited in 2002 and I have returned to my surprise they have made it bigger and so much better. You have a massive selection of trams to look at. Plus a few to ride on all day. There is an old fashioned pub. Sweet shop. Gift shop. A nice walk up to the memorial on the cliff and... More
