Lovely day out with a combination of interest, fun and shopping. A great way to engage in something educational and interesting without the bore, with an interactive visitor centre, amusements and cheap yet quality gift shop.

One-of-a-kind outdoor museum in the UK. It feels a bit out in the sticks to get there but once you're there, it's a fab place to visit, especially if you want to see what it was like to live in the now dim-and-distant past. A short walk from the carpark to the Ticket Hall and once you're through the gate... More

This is a nice day out, the trams were interesting and it was clearly a project that the volunteers are passionate about and you could tell which was lovely. The reclaimed building were very interesting and the tram ride was fun. The sculpture park was absolutely excellent and the park areas were good too. My gripe is that it is... More

This is the second time we have been in Derbyshire and visited Crichton, we came for a 1940's weekend where everything was in WW2 clothing and a really good selection of Second World War memorabilia, the trams are maintained in such good condition and the tram rides were really interesting, definitely worth a visit.

I am 60 years old and was born in Chesterfield only 15 miles from Crich but, sad to say, had never been before. My wife and I went on the 21st August and I, though not my wife, was delighted to find that on top of the pleasure that is the village itself there was also a model railway/tramway exhibition...

The Tramway takes you back to the golden age of public transport that was found in most of our major cities. You can certainly enjoy a few rides on a variety of tramcars as well as also look at the collection of old buildings that are on site. I defiantly recommend you pay the tramway village a visit & enjoy... More

This museum has an old fashioned village/town setting with lots of different trams which you can ride on all day long if you like. This is one awesome day out for the family with a museum hall displaying lots of old trams and other relics. There's the old tin mine area, a fabulous woodland walk plus a pub restaurant and...
