I'm fortunate that Crich is only 12 miles from my home and so I've been on several occasions and to many of the special events. If you can get more than once, the admission price which seems a little expensive at first, is good value as your ticket is valid for 12 months including events except the 1940s weekend and Halloween. Your ticket entitles you to as many tram rides as you want. You can see the tram workshops from a viewing gallery, there is an exhibition of static trams, a rebuilt pub, sweet shop, ice cream parlour, printing works and a discovery centre explaining about the stone works (the museum is in a quarry). Dogs on leads are allowed even on the trams. It's a good family outing; children seem to enjoy everything and it's also nostalgic for those who remember the old tram systems.

My second visit. Enjoyable and the excellent weather was/is an important factor. On a wet day this would not be as much fun as the centre is stretched out across a village street. Lengthy tram rides included in entrance fee. Tram sheds with a fantastic collection as well as a large undercover museum, workshops, education centre, shops, catering, pub, ice cream and even a working old style print shop. Park with Victorian Bandstand plenty of room for children and families to have fun. This is a must visit attraction even if you think you don't like trams! You will be converted! Large free car park, easy access and a special tram with wheel chair lift. Good value for money. Visit!

This is a good place to go and look around, particularly if you are a transport fan because one of the aims of the museum is to get trams that typify each area in the UK and the time that they ran.

We enjoyed the tram ride experience, the museums and workshops etc. There is even a rebuilt pub that came from Stoke-on-Trent; a pint of ale was less than three pounds, so good value.

Because the ticket lasts a year, we went back again and completed the woodland walk that we didn't do the first time we went. You can also walk from the far end of the line up to Crich Stand, a tower on the top of the cliff, and climb that for extensive views across Derbyshire.

There is a tram with wheelchair access that runs a few times a day, but check when it runs, via the website, before you go should you need it.

Loved riding on the old trams. The volunteers have a real passion for trams and I learned a great deal about tram history.
