Compared to previous visit obviously restricted. I give 4 stars as with only one tram ride didn’t seem the same value for money as previous. It’s clean, staff are excellent the tram ride is very... more »
Incongruously perched at the top of a hill, this wonderful museum is a delight. The tramway was working although additional booking was required owing to Covid-19 - we didn't book a ticket that... more »
The Tramway Village is a brilliant place to visit with both children and adults. There are lots of things to see and do whilst there. The trams run up and down the village and we could catch one every 10 minutes. There are 2 places to eat, though the pub had very limited food. The cafe had some different options for food and was good for children to eat at. The sweet shop had some nice products and there were a few nice things in the gift shop, however we were very disappointed that there were very few 'tram' related gifts in either shop. The trams are amazing and there is a huge range to look at. There is an indoor soft play and an outdoor play area for children. The woodland walk is brilliant and has lots of sculptures and fun things to see and do along the paths. The mining display is also interesting to see. You can easily spend a day here. There are plenty of toilets and baby change facilities. You can't take pushchairs on the trams though so they have to be left in a buggy park.
Beautiful surroundings and views. Great place for families and all ages alike. Authentic vintage trams with period costumed operators!! Pub, sweet shop, print house and tea shop in old style. Museum housing lots of trams and hands on exhibits. Well worth a visit!!
