All the fun of the British seaside to arrive in the Peak District at Crich Tramway Village!

Beside the Seaside 2019 at Crich Tramway Village

Visitors won’t have to travel to the coast to have all the fun of the fair as Crich Tramway Village brings the British seaside inland to the Peak District for nine days of fun from 25th May to Sunday 2nd June.

Beside the Seaside will see the village transformed into a family-themed seaside resort with a beach area and marquee with games and bingo, complete with deck chairs and buckets and spades for children to build their own sandcastles. Enjoy unlimited rides on our ‘seaside’ trams taking you into the Derbyshire countryside.

Beside the Seaside 2018

The children can get into the spirit of the event by having their faces painted, watching the balloon modelling and making sandcastles…

Visit the beach by the bandstand! Bring your buckets and and spades and have your photo taken through the saucy postcard photo board 🙂

Howard’s Fun Fair will give visitors the chance to ride on the steam gallopers, a big wheel and the Austin Car Ride. 

Be amused at Punch and Judy entertainment and Prof. Jon’s “Flea” Circus. Get involved in Juggling Jim’s Circus Workshop.

The children will love the fantastic outdoor adventure playground and indoor play areas, and there are also fascinating exhibitions and a woodland park and sculpture trail, so there’s something to keep all the family entertained.
