Crich Tramway Village Review
A step back in time
Over the last Bank Holiday weekend I had a day out with my son to the Crich Tramway Village in Derbyshire. It was a spur of the moment visit and we were pleased to find out that there was a special event on which was celebrating the Great British Seaside. So with a picnic packed and a flask of coffee for the journey we headed out for an adventure in a bygone time. Read on to find out about this living history village, why it’s not just about the trams, and how many doughnuts we ate!
What is it?
Soft Play Centre
Riding on the Trams
Labyrinth Picnic Area & Adventure Playground
We also had a rest in one of the very old trams that you were able to go inside – this had very springy seats which were surprisingly comfortable, and so we relaxed and watched a video on the screens about Blackpool trams. After a much needed rest we headed out to enjoy some of the Great British Seaside Event.
Great British Seaside Event
1.Interesting and fun day out for all ages (including well behaved dogs).
2. Aspects that you can enjoy on a wet day such as the indoor museum and having lots of rides on the trams.
3. Good Value Admission Prices:
1. Queue times at the start of each day can be busy for a ride on the trams – head for the softplay or museum first if you see a long line at the village tram stop, or take a walk up through hotel adventure park and woodland trail first.
2. The specially adapted accessibility tram only makes two journeys per day – at the time of writing these operate at 11.30am and 2.30pm on request.
