Spotlight on Crich Tramway Village

Be transported back in time on their wonderful vintage trams or soak up the atmosphere in their street that harks back to a different era with a visit to the shops and enjoy the tea rooms and pub – all on site.

Take a tram ride through time at Crich Tramway Village, home of the National Tramway Museum, an ideal destination for all.

Visitors are invited to ride the world-renowned vintage trams through the uniquely inspired old – world street and out into the countryside for those spectacular views.

Explore insightful exhibitions and even watch as the trams are restored in the Workshop Viewing Gallery. Compliment your day here with a stroll along the Woodland Walk and Sculpture Trail and take tea at Rita’s tea rooms, the perfect place to take a rest, relax and enjoy the surroundings

Or visit the unique Red Lion Pub, formerly a working public house in Stoke on Trent, rebuilt here at the museum, brick by brick as part of the recreated street scene.

No visit would be complete though without popping in to Barnett’s Sweet shop, a veritable Aladdin’s cave of sweets where you will find old fashioned jars of sweets, tins of confectionary, foil wrapped bars of fudge and toffee, all jostling for space in the period shop.

All in all, a wonderful, full day’s outing. For further inspiration have a look at some of our other blogs here.
