It doesn't to live up to expectations, always says what they're going to be having there, but never do, dilapidated and run down!!
my parents used to take us up on the glen railway,when we were kids.and my wife and me also took our children,we used to tell them keep your eyes open for the elves and pixies along the side of the glen railway,its something they all remember as theyve got older.I recommend a visit to shipley glen if anyone is in...

Kids love riding up and down to Saltaire on the Tram. Its only a couple of £ and now that Roberts park has been refurbished it's a great way to kill a few hours on a Sunday afternoon.
The tram itself is worth a visit if you are in the area, as it has a history. There is a small museum worth a visit too. The tram goes up to a residential street, so not much to do but get back on the tram and come back down. Still, for £2 return, worth the trip. and there is... More
Took the children out recently to Shipley Glen, haven't been for a long time it was a nice day so we took a picnic, spent some time on the glen then strolled down to the railway as the children loved it previously, only to be told the railway only opens on weekends which is a shame, especially on children's school...

I'm sorry you did not find the tramway open. However you could not have looked at our publicity or our website, where the operating times are clearly displayed! It is all very well to complain about not being open during school holidays, but don't forget the tramway is staffed solely by volunteers and we would need many more volunteers to... More
What a wonderful relic of a once thriving Victorian pleasure ground. The £2 adult all-day ticket is a bargain considering the amount of upkeep such a unique form of transport must take. When you get to the top, keep walking up the hill to the café and adjacent pub. Their respective outdoor terraces are a veritable sun trap in the... More
This cute Victorian tramway goes through a lovely glade on a pulley system. Love how the people wave to the kids when the upward and downwards tram cross :-) x. Run entirely by volunteers so well worth supporting and it's so much easier than walking up the Glen on a red hot Sunday x x
A great day out for everyone children and older folk love it Santa has a grotto on the top of the tramway during the season with a quiz for th children and a present off santa
Visit Saltair victorian village,take a ride up the tramway and then a walk on Shipley Glen. The traway isnt the Pepsi Max at Blackpool,but the kids will love it. Run by volentiers,go on support them.Its over 100 yrs old
I wouldn't necessarily suggest that anyone visit Shipley just to come see the Tramway, but if you're there anyway, just pop by. There's a lovely little makeshift old world museum in the tram shed (free to nosy) and then a five minute chunter up the hill in the cable tram (a coupla quid). The whole experience takes about a half... More
