Just a 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. You can also visit Barnett's Old-Fashioned Sweet Shop, Gift Shop, Ice Cream Parlour, Great Exhibition Hall and Depots. Watch the expert craftsmen maintaining and restoring vintage trams from the Workshop Viewing Gallery.
