About Crich Tramway Village

Crich Tramway Village, home to the National Tramway Museum, offers one of Derbyshire's great family days out and a step back in time. Vintage trams run along a period street, climbing a mile and a half of track, providing breathtaking views of the surrounding Derbyshire countryside. Experience the fascinating Woodland Walk & Sculpture Trail, which winds its way back to the village, or remain on the tram to the end of the journey, alighting outside Barnett’s Sweet Shop, before visiting the fascinating Exhibitions and Workshop Viewing Gallery, where you can see experts at work maintaining and restoring the vintage trams.

There is a programme of special events, with fun for all the family. Details can be found on the website.
