Crich Tramway Village

Crich Tramway Village is a lovingly restored period village that is also home to the National Tramway Museum and its world renowned archives.

You may have a keen interest in trams, transport or history or may just be looking for a unique place to visit, whatever your interest there is lots to see, explore and discover and the village makes an ideal family day out in the heart of Derbyshire.

Trams run to and fro every few minutes as visitors ride over the cobbles of our period street, past the original facades of historic buildings from the around the country before heading up the valley to views that will take your breath away. Hand over the old penny you are given on entry and you are free to ride the trams all day.

The Exhibition Hall brings to life the history of the tram and includes a recreation of the 1905 Tramways Exhibition, whilst the Workshop Viewing Gallery allows visitors to see for themselves the ongoing restoration and repair work that is carried out each day.

Our indoor "Discovery Depot" with its ball pit and tram-themed soft play area and outdoor Adventure Playground are the perfect place for children to let off steam or they can tax their brains with our fun and informative Activity Booklet.

Or the less energetic can take a stroll along the Woodland Walk and Sculpture Trail, ideal for a picnic or simply to enjoy the stunning views and fascinating sculptures.

Should you need a rest The Red Lion or Rita's Tea Rooms both offer refreshments and Scothern & Williamson Gift Shop and Barnett's Traditional Sweets sell a wide range of gifts, toys, confectionary and books.
