Overall a good family day out. The kids loved riding the trams and they have a nice museum. There isn't a huge amount to do if you don't like trams but if you do, I would pay Crich a visit. I think they could do with more food options but this didn't really affect our visit

If you are interested in trams, this is the place to go. It is quite a big museum with a large assortment of varied trams collected over time. It poured with rain when we visited, but fortunately most of the exhibits are under cover. There is the possibility of taking a one penny ride,( you are given a ticket )... More

Until this summer we hadn't visited Crich for many years and were impressed to see how much it has been developed thanks to the vision and hard work of the enthusiasts and volunteers. As the tickets are for 12 months we were able to return again at Hallow'een but unfortunately the 3 year old was too tired for us to... More

We had an excellent day out at Crich in August. Another dog friendly museum, which is good for us. Lots of exhibits and free tram rides are included and we also went to the WW2 themed weekend which was really good fun! We can revisit the museum again this year without charge. Recommended!

This is a lovely family day out. We enjoyed walking along the cobbles and popping into the shops, the exhibition hall and the tram sheds. The trams travel up and down stopping at the park and the top of the hill where you can get off and walk up to see the monument. It can be a bit rough going... More

Interesting visit. Be aware that there are few on-site shops, etc. to browse on a cold day!! The tram sheds were fascinating and the staff very informative.

This is a great family attraction, especially at Hallowe'en. Lots to do for children and lots of interest for adults with the old engine sheds. Tram rides every few minutes. From the Glory Mine you can walk up to Crich Stand - rough walk but worth it. Come back down via the road and reenter the main building as before... More

Prior to visiting the Village my wife and I phoned up to confirm the evenings events. We were informed that a number of additional attractions would be added. Ghost walk, illuminated tram rides and story telling. On arriving we paid the entrance of 34 pounds for family of four ( youngest for free due to being dressed as a witch... More
