Well worth a visit to see living history of days gone by, once buying a ticket, you can ride the trams all day long, there is a pub , brought to this museum and rebuilt one brick at a time, I understand it took ten years to complete ....other attractions are the tram museum, and the trams workshop area, which...

We had a really good day out here. The staff were lovely, the village is fantastic and the trams were fab! Excellent value as your admission ticket is valid for unlimited return visits within the calendar year. It's obvious that this attraction is added to and refreshed regularly; I'd like to see a few more houses/shops open though! As you... More

A great day out! You definitely feel like going back in time. The exhibition is amazing with old trams and a lot of info and history about each decade. Riding on one of those old trams was great fun and the view is amazing being in Peak District. Definitely recommend it!

A brilliant way to spend a day out, there is plenty to do and see, the entrance ticket allows as many re-visits to the Tramway Village as you want during the following year. There are vintage trams to ride on, trams to view in the museum, exhibits showing the restoration of old trams, and one fascinating description of painstaking restoration... More

We spent about 5 hours here and really enjoyed it. Staff are so welcoming and friendly from the moment you enter. The setting is lovely too and the whole place had plenty of people but not at all crowded on a Saturday afternoon in June. We rode three different and very beautiful old trams - you can ride them as... More

Crich holds some personal interest for me as my long-dead uncle used to own a tram and use it for a summer house. As he got old and unable to maintain it, he donated it to the museum and they restored it. But, my nepotism aside, Crich makes for a great day out. Okay, I'll be honest; once you've ridden... More

I've been to Crich Tramway Village so many times and love it. There's always plenty to see and do. The special events they put on are well thought out and planned. One ticket gets you in all year and well worth the money. My 6yo son loves it and never gets bored. Well done Crich and ill see you in... More

We visited the Tramway museum and were a bit concerned after reading Tripadvisor reviews - we thought we'd spend perhaps an hour or two and have a few tram rides. Well - we didn't know about Ken! Ken is a volunteer tour guide and his warmth, enthusiasm and knowledge really made our trip an outstanding day and we ended up... More

Great place to visit always offers around to get cheaper admission. We have been on several occasions, including classic mini events. Great to see the old trams, especially now Blackpool have replaced most of theirs with the new modern types.
