I went on this tram with my 4-year-old God-daughter and worried, before we got there, that it might be a bit grown up for her or a bit slow. Not at all! She was as captivated as I was.
Our guide, Nick, was charming and knowledgable. His commentary was funny and clever and peppered with facts that, despite having lived in Buxton for a decade, I had had no idea about. I will certainly never look at the sell-by date on a bottle of mineral water the same way again (but you'd have to take the tour to find out why...).
The trip into the Dome was unexpected and interesting - particularly as there was a wedding being set there the next day and it was beautifully decorated for it. We stood in the middle of the Dome and experienced the echoes that Nick explained to us.
I would have happily gone round twice but there was a queue of people waiting for the next tour when we got back to the Opera House - I'd recommend booking to make sure you get on as it only holds 8 people.
My God-daughter was enchanted by the tour - mostly because she thought all the people staring open-mouthed at the tram (known as the 'Wonder of the Peak' for jolly good reason) were looking at her. She waved at them the whole way round and they all waved back.
We'll definitely be going on the tram again on our next visit to Buxton (and all the visits after that).
