Visitors won’t have to travel to the coast to have all the fun of the fair as Crich Tramway Village bring the British seaside inland to the Peak District for nine days of fun from 26th May to Sunday 3rd June.

Beside the Seaside will see the village transformed into a family-themed seaside resort with a beach area complete with deck chairs and buckets and spades for children to build their own sandcastles. Howard’s Fun Fair will give visitors the chance to ride on the steam gallopers, a big wheel and the Austin Car Ride as well as the Gavioli Organ and Showman’s Stream Engine – on every day.

Be amused by Prof. Jon’s “Flea” Circus and laugh at the traditional Punch and Judy Shows!
