Looking for a great day out in Derbyshire? Then look no further than Crich Tramway Village. Nestling high up in the heart of Derbyshire overlooking the famous Derwent Valley and open almost throughout the year, Crich Tramway Village is a lovingly restored period village that is also home to the National Tramway Museum.

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 Great Exhibition Hall is home to an exciting new 'Century of Trams Exhibition' tracing 100 years of tram history, from the earliest horse trams of the 1860s, through the steam years and on to the end of the electric tram era in the 1960s. 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 is ideal for younger children to let off steam whilst older children will enjoy the outdoor Adventure Playground 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, ideal for a picnic or simply to enjoy the stunning views and sculptures.
