Our trip on this Victorian tram ( converted from a milk float) was informative and fun. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we stopped at the Dome which was amazing and also at St Anne's church in Higher Buxton. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Fantastic hour long tour of Buxton on a converted milk float. Our guide was very informative and rest fun. There was 3 children in our tour and the guide involved them all the way. Highly recommend this tour.
