“Really enjoyed it!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

At first i was a little hesitent to go as i am not really a big car or tram person but once in i loved it. It was very nice and the ticket i bought lasted me a year. I did love to go on the tram my children enjoyed sitting ontop after going up the old stairs and having their tickets stamped by the conductor. The shop was also lovely and it was a lovely way to travel around the place. The place had a short walk but what it lacked it milage it gain for in size of playarea. The size was massive and very clean. Our dog was also allowed in which was an added bonus! I would definatly recomend this place especially if you have young children or transport enthusiasts in your family. Very nice but only on a good day. This place is not very buggy friendly as lots of steps and not very many other ways to get around other than the steep steps.

“Lovely Step Back Into Time”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

A pretty little village lets you step back into a time when journeys by tram were common place. The village has a traditional sweet shop and pub, cafe as well as a very interesting museum and a large tram shed with an extensive collection of old and new.
You can have unlimited trips up and down by tram, there is a very pretty woodland walk with ample benches for you to enjoy a picnic while the children run off some excess energy in the large safe picnic area overlooking stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
The staff are very helpful, knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
Your ticket is valid for 12 months.

“Fabulous Day Out!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This place is fantastic. The dedication from the volunteers to get the site and trams to the standard that they are is remarkable. Take a trip on one of the numerous original trams along the mile long track and explore the museum and rest of the site at your leisure. Absolutely superb.

“Its ok....”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

You pay once and can go all year but they are really picky about this as I went once in summer 2012 then returned October 12...and my signature was slightly diffrent to the one I did first off and they really was humming about letting us in....
But its nice I'm sure you couldn't spend a whole day there but there's loads to do in the surrounding areas...

“Brilliant day out for young and old.”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

It's a fantastic place with lots to do. The first great thing is you pay once and then you can go upto a year for free !!!!!! There are unlimted rides on the trams and at each stop there something different to do. There is a mine/woodland walkway/olde world e shopping street. There is also a museum that shows you the trams through the ages and themed weekends from scooters and bikes to vw's. A must for all the family and go all year round. x
