Lovely ride on tram about 1mile. Some nice history in museum. Great selection of trams. Just felt for money needs a bit more to do. We spent around 3hrs here including cafe break.

Our first visit and much more than we had anticipated. The trams have been lovingly restored and the care and detail taken in the relocation of buildings is second to none. Loved the idea of using 'old' pennies to purchase your ticket. We visited on...More

This is our second visit this year. £40 for a family ticket and we're able to keep coming back over the year. Great trams. Only downside was the teashop ran out of sandwiches and the queue to be served was very very slow. Last time...More

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry that the Tearoom ran out of sandwiches. This was obviously due to being very busy. The Red Lion pub also serves snacks including paninis for future reference.

Had a fantastic day - family ticket cost £40 which was reasonable considering how much we got from it. Riding the trams were the kids highlights they even went on their own while Mum & Dad enjoyed a cuppa with cake at the tea room....More

Hadn't been to Crich for years, so were amazed to see how it's grown. We visited for the 1940's weekend. Lots of people in character (Saturday) lots of vintage trams to ride on. Woodland walk and play area. Will visit again soon.

Wow, what a brilliant day, marred slightly by the weather but still so much to see, indoors and out, that our time passed really quickly. We were part of a National Holidays weekend trip which also took in Bakewell and Matlock Bath but, without doubt,...More

Yes we still run the trams, and if rain is forecast, we don't run open top trams, so you will be dry inside the trams. We also have three exhibition areas and the tram depots which are inside, plus if you want refreshments... More
