Spotlight on Crich Tramway Village

When you visit Crich Tramway Village you can be transported back in time on their wonderful vintage trams or soak up the atmosphere that harks back to a different era with a visit to the shops and enjoy the tea rooms and pub – all on site. Home of the National Tramway Museum, it is set in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside offering an excellent view of the Derwent Valley.

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. With a focus on industrial heritage, nature and folklore there is much to learn about lead mining and local minerals

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. And finally, a visit to the Forge gift shop is a must to pick up that all-important gift, or maybe just to treat yourself.

With access for all it is a wonderful, full day’s outing. For further inspiration have a look at some of our other blogs here. Alternatively, for more information about Crich Tramway village just click here.
