Crich Tramway Village offers one of Derbyshire’s great family days out.
Trams run to and fro down a period street, passing under the Bowes-Lyon Bridge and climbing a mile and a half of track that provides breathtaking views of the surrounding Derbyshire countryside.
Experience the Woodland Walk & Sculpture Trail, which winds its way back to the village, or remain on the tram and be dropped off outside The Red Lion Pub and Tearooms.
How about calling in to look at the fascinating exhibitions and workshop viewing gallery?
There are also picnic areas and indoor and outdoor play areas to keep the children entertained.
Bluebells Ice Cream Parlour is open daily for locally sourced ice cream and hot drinks.
A temporary exhibition ‘Tramway Tommies and Clippie Girls’ details the recruitment of men for the Army, which left many tramways short of staff for the tramcars. This is located next to the ‘Survive and Thrive the Electric Era’ exhibition in the village’s Derby Assembly Rooms.
There are guided tours and talks every day, so visitors will be able to find out even more about the site, its history, restoration projects and the trams.
Look out for special events throughout the year, including two Second World War events, anEdwardian event, a seaside event and the Starlight event at the end of the season which culminates in Halloween.
Pre-booked groups of ten or more receive discounted rates. Details can be found on the website.
The Village is open daily until October 30, 2016. For more details, contact 01773 854321 or visit www.tramway.co.uk.
