UK»England»Derbyshire»Crich Tramway Village

Crich Tramway Village is a lovingly restored period village that is also home to the National Tramway Museum and its world renowned archives. Nestling high up in the heart of Derbyshire overlooking the famous Derwent Valley and open almost throughout the year. Trams run to and fro every few minutes as visitors ride over the cobbles of the period street, past the original facades of historic buildings from around the country before heading up the valley to views that will take your breath away, while the Exhibition Hall brings to life the history of the tram and includes a recreation of the 1905 Tramways Exhibition. There is even an adventure playground and soft play area in case the younger visitors are not completely tired out.
