Crich Tramway Village, Derbyshire

The Crich Tramway Village is possibly one of the best days out in Derbyshire for all the family.
Situated close to many of the main routes running through the Midlands, The Crich Tramway Village is readily accessible from Sheffield, Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, Stoke-on-Trent, Birmingham and beyond.
Nestling on the edge of the Peak District this award-winning museum takes you on a mile-long scenic journey through a period street to open countryside with panoramic views over the Derwent Valley.
On arrival collect your old penny to pay the conductor your tram fare, and receive a ticket you can use all day. Trams depart regularly from town end, calling at various stops along the mile long track.
The recreated period street takes you back in time and is made up of buildings that have been rescued from towns and cities throughout the UK – many rebuilt brick by brick. The street furniture dotted along the street has also been rescued and re-instated at the museum.
At Crich Tramway Village you can enjoy unlimited vintage tram rides along the street, and explore 30,000 sq ft of indoor attractions. The Exhibition Hall houses the largest collection of vintage electric trams in Britain.
There are lots of places to visit on the Tramway Street such as Rita’s Tearoom, The Red Lion Pub and the Poulson Room, Barnett’s old fashioned sweetshop, Scothern and Williamson gift shop, the Eagle Press and Bluebells Ice Cream Parlour and refreshments.
The street scene gives a perfect backdrop to show case the historic tram collection and also comes to life during many of Crich Tramway Village’s period events.
Crich Tramway Village gladly welcomes four-legged family members and they have recently been recommended as a dog friendly venue by the Dogs Trust. This is one of the few museums to welcome dogs free of charge and they actively encourage you to bring your dog in as the carpark is very sunny and unsuitable for dogs to be left in cars. All they ask is that you keep your dog on a short lead and clear up after them.
Dogs can go everywhere with you except the catering establishments and the children’s indoor play area.
If you want to stretch your legs or give your beloved dog a bit more exercise, you can enjoy the Woodland Walk & Sculpture Trail that winds its way through native woodland now dotted with sculptures by local artists.
Definitely one of the top dog friendly attractions in Derbyshire!
Open daily from Saturday 28th March – Sunday 1st November.
