I haven't been on the tram itself but I love to walk along side it up the steep path way to the glen where you can enjoy a pint and food at the old glen house, walk on the glen, and look round the bracken hall nature museum (quite small and very dated but passes 15mins). Really good for a bike ride aswell

This has been going for a long time and is a great way to get to Shipley Glen from Saltaire. Fun for everyone!

Dislike: Aerial glide no longer there (memories of childhood!).
Also very restricted opening.
Like: Just beautiful - as ever, smaller than I remember!
