Crich Tramway Village, home to the National Tramway Museum, is pleased to announce that following some essential safety work, the vintage trams are running again, and the museum is excited to welcome visitors, old and new, back for the summer visits from Saturday 2nd July 2022.

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 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.

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 and visitors are welcome to wander around for a close up view of the trams, as well as more historical information at the rear of the depots.

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!
