Voted East Midlands' Best Day Out by viewers of BBC East Midlands Today, Crich Tramway Village has developed into one of Derbyshire's most unique family attractions. Trams run to and fro down a cobbled street past the former Derby Assembly rooms before passing under the Bowes-Lyon Bridge and climbing a mile and a half of track that provides breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.

Experience the fascinating Woodland Walk and Sculpture Trail which winds its way back to the village or remain on the tram and be dropped off outside The Red Lion Pub and Tearooms before visiting the fascinating Workshop Viewing Gallery. There are also picnic areas and indoor and outdoor play areas to keep the children entertained.

Woodland Workshops take place throughout the Summer Holidays. Children can take part in activities such as Woodland Yoga, African Drumming and even make their very own Woodland Goblin, Magic book or Totem Pole Mask to take home. Places are limited so please telephone the attraction to book in advance!

It is definitely worth the admission if you live locally. The tickets are valid for 12 months and it's nice to spend the afternoon tere and you can go as often as you want. There is a woodland walk which the kids love with wood sculptures scattered along it. There is a large outdoor play area with lots of equipment. They serve great ice cream and it's fun to go on the trams. There is usually about three running on a day. The admission money etc. Goes towards helping to restore some trams and the people that work there are full of knowledge and mainly volunteers. Also it's very dog friendly

Not worth the money

Visited during the easter holiday with my mum and 8 year old son. Theres not alot there to justify paying 16.50 each, you are basically paying to maintain the trams. It may be good for train watches i suppose as the trams are very well maintained. Baffles me that this place has such good reviews because theres nothing to it. If it was around £5-8 each for adults maybe id say it was worth it. But even then I wont be going back.

Something for everyone, from tram rides, woodland walks to softplay. Plus get to return as often as you like through out the year.
