Wirksworth Walk with Trains, Quarries and Summer Flowers; history and nature

I am a regular walker and traveller and live in the Peak District. I love this area for its beauty and nature.<br>This particular walk is special as we start along the Peak Trail on an old train line used for carrying the quarry stones, then move on to Woodland, beautiful open countryside and through traditional villages.<br>It is the variety of underfoot terrain, views and breathtaking nature that I love so much about this walk.<br>I am not a licensed guide but I have business insurance for your peace of mind and regular lead walks and both UK and European Tours

Compared to previous visit obviously restricted. I give 4 stars as with only one tram ride didn’t seem the same value for money as previous. It’s clean, staff are excellent the tram ride is very safe distanced and masked of course. Catering facilities are poor, food is not the best so we left for a late lunch elsewhere. Covid measures in most areas are very good, great effort, but obviously a few people either don’t care or can’t follow instructions. The exhibition is a rather uncontrolled area, very little distancing, no staff to control queue or ensure safe distances between groups. One way was not followed people wandering aimlessly no distancing or thought for anyone else. We left quickly! Needs someone inside controlling the flow and better marking of the one way for example use some roping or indoor fencing to define the path through as no one was following it absolutely no one (markings on the floor, but either ignored or not seen) Felt a bit like Morrison’s in rush hour. Aside from this it was a good day out and we need to support these attractions during these difficult times. So please go and enjoy the day, with a free return within 12 months you can always return to get your value. Woodland walk is excellent lots of surprises and worth the wander!

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your visit but sorry to hear that some people were not adhering to instructions. We do have marshals on the main exhibition hall, and the majority of people do follow the guidelines. We will make more regular checks.

Incongruously perched at the top of a hill, this wonderful museum is a delight. The tramway was working although additional booking was required owing to Covid-19 - we didn't book a ticket that included a tram ride as the full network was not available. The actual trams on display were beautifully presented and displayed - the only shame was that the ones normally open to board were all closed - all again due to Covid. This is totally understandable. Having not been for over 30 years it was a nice trip down memory lane!

Thank you for your review. The full tram journey is available, it is just that we cannot let visitors off at different tram stops under the current Covid-19 guidelines. We have had to minimise access to the depots too, but all other facilities and exhibitions are open (with guidelines on social distancing, one way in and out and the wearing of face coverings etc.) We hope you will visit again in the near future, when hopefully things will be more accessible.

We visited with 3 adults and a baby (4 months old) as we were holidaying in the area. We decided not to bother with the tram ride so paid £10 per adult for entry. We found this place to be a lovely little place and enjoyed wandering around. The tram exhibition was interesting and others seemed to enjoy the tram ride. We loved the woodland walk and although it doesn’t recommend it as pram friendly we didn’t have a problem with our pram (and it isn’t a fancy walkers pram!) The sculptures were great and plenty of them. There were also some woodland games and lots of places for picnics. I can see this walk appealing to toddlers and younger children. We will definitely back when the baby is older.

Our Railtrail tour arrived at Crich tramway village on this wet and damp Saturday afternoon. Our slotted time for the tram ride did mean we were early so a visit to the shop or Red Lion pub. We soon were on our Leeds tram for the ride from the village terminus to the end at Glory Mine were we change our seat direction to face the other way for our return journey back. On return I visited first the Derby Assembly Rooms and Mail Box by tram exhibition, visited the workshop viewing gallery, Tram Depots and Great Exhibition Hall which contained various types of trams throughout the century starting in the 1860's to 1960's.

A ride on a vintage tram. Excellent and worth a visit. So much bigger than I thought it would be. Great for families.
