Crich Tramway Village

Crich Tramway Village is planning to open its indoor exhibitions and Workshop viewing gallery from 17 May.

The Derbyshire attraction will be open Saturdays through to Thursdays from 10am to 4.30pm (last admissions 3pm) under the government guidance for Step 2.

Outside areas including the outdoor playground and woodland walk will be accessible and there will be limited trams running.

The trams, which are crewed by a team of volunteers, will be limited, and face coverings should be worn as per the national guidance for public transport.

Members of the public will need to book a timed ticket for tram rides on arrival, and there will only be one stop for getting on and alighting the trams, to help ensure the safety of passengers, volunteers and staff.

Face coverings will also be required to be worn in the shops (the same exemptions as for public transport apply).

We have produced a ‘Covid-19 Crich Tramway Village guidance’ sheet, which describes what visitors can expect and this can be downloaded from our website.

In line with other venues, the indoor exhibitions, tram depot and soft play area will remain closed and the numbers in indoor areas such as the shops and on the trams will be limited. Card and Contactless payments are preferred, and full-priced tickets can be purchased online from April.

Crich Tramway have received the 'We're Good to Go' certificate from the National Tourist Board of England. 


Just 40 minutes-drive from Derby, Crich Tramway Village is located in the heart of Derbyshire on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Overlooking the famous Derwent Valley, Crich Tramway Village is a lovingly restored period village and home to the National Tramway Museum and its world- renowned archives.

Vintage trams operate along the 1-mile track, through the re-created village and out into spectacular views of the countryside.

There is much to see and do at Crich. Admission rates include unlimited electric tram rides all day, and you can enjoy strolling along the Woodland Walk and Sculpture Trail, taking refreshments in Rita's Tearoom or The Red Lion Pub and visiting the exhibitions.

The Exhibition Hall houses the ‘Century of Trams’ and the History Makers – The Creative Genius of Michael Holroyd Smith interactive exhibitions.

In the Derby Assembly Rooms, with the authentic original facade of the eponymous venue, you’ll find ‘Survive and Thrive- The Electric Era’ and ‘The Mobile Post Box – Mail by Tram’ exhibitions.

You can also visit Barnett's Old-Fashioned Sweet Shop, Gift Shop, Printing Press and Ice Cream Parlour.  Watch the expert craftsmen maintaining and restoring vintage trams from the Workshop Viewing Gallery.

The tram depots host the fleet of trams, plus the 1913 Barnsley & District Combination Car No. 5, a single decker bus, which is a beautiful example of buses built as an alternative to trams at the time.

With a programme of Special Events throughout the season, there’s bound to be something for everyone, and you can even bring your dog!

All Aboard!
