The Crich Tramway Village is just 7 miles from Matlock Bath town centre in Derbyshire’s Peak District making it a popular destination for visitors to the area.

Home to the National Tramway Museum, visitors can take unlimited tram rides on the mile long track through the museum and restored village to the Glory Mine and spectacular views across the Derwent valley. For those who like to get their hands dirty (or more accurately, watch others get their hands dirty) a visit to the workshop viewing gallery is in order to see the ongoing tram restoration and maintenance.

Visitors can also stroll along the cobbled street of the restored period village visiting the shops or Red Lion pub for a bite to eat or for a longer walk explore the woodland park and sculpture trail.

Location

The Crich Tram museum is 8 miles from junction 28 of the M1, just off the B5035 (see adjacent map). For sat-nav users, the post code is DE4 5DP.
