Crich Tramway Village offers families a great day out in which they step back in time, travelling on vintage trams down a period street.
This amazing Derbyshire attraction reopens on March 17 after a winter makeover. Visitors can board and alight from the trams all day long. They pass under the impressive Bowes-Lyon Bridge and climb for 1.5 miles to breathtaking views of the Derwent Valley.
From there, passengers can walk a woodland sculpture trail back to the village, stop to picnic or play or stay on board and get dropped at the Red Lion Pub & Tearooms. From there they can take refreshments, browse and buy from the shops of yesteryear and investigate the freshly spruced up tram terminus and its fascinating displays.
Not to be missed is the world-famous collection of trams and the chance to see expert craftsmen restoring them.
Various exhibitions are designed to enthral. They include one telling the story of trams from horse-drawn vehicles in the 1860s to the electric versions of the 1960s. Another, Arms to Armstice, tells how war affected transport and changed women’s lives.
Exciting special events run frequently and people buying full priced tickets can return free for a year (subject to terms and conditions).
Crich Tramway Village opens daily to November 4. Visit www.tramway.co.uk for more information.
