Crich Tramway Village: Popular family Peak District attraction reopens for 2024

Crich Tramway Village

Crich Tramway Village, one of Derbyshire’s most popular visitor attractions, has re-opened for Spring! They are also delighted to confirm that their vintage trams are now back up ad running and fully operational.

Vintage Trams and Timeless Charm

Located in the scenic Derbyshire Dales, the vintage trams, dating back to the 1900s, transport you along the traditional village street setting into open countryside with breathtaking views of Derwent Valley. There’s definitely a sense of stepping back in time along the recreated period street!

Actual trams running will be posted each day by 10am on their social media accounts Facebook and X. This means their standard entry prices now apply.

Traverse the traditional village street, adorned with rescued buildings from across the UK, each steeped in history and character. Marvel at the Derby Assembly Rooms façade, which came to Crich after a tragic fire. As the trams take you in open countryside, enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding Derwent Valley.
