Crich Tramway Village Review a

Wednesday, 17 June 2015
Sometimes you take for granted where you live, I sure do - we live in such a lovely area with so much around us to do and so many places to visit. It's impossible to not find somewhere to go, at the weekend we visited Crich Tramway Village, which although isn't in our direct area its not too far away to drive too. We have visited here previously with Jack when he was 15 months old, you can read about that visit here. Jack really enjoyed it and we did say when he was older we would take him back again. 
When we visited back in 2013 the weather was glorious and we couldn't have asked for better, this time it wasn't as nice but there was still plenty to do and see and we still had a fantastic day out.

Crich truly is a typical village, its small and has everything you could possibly need in one place. Theres a real tramline which runs along a cobbled street from one end of the village to the other with all amenities in between. The tramline is around a mile and a half long providing plenty of entertainment and views of the countryside. 
Riding the trams at Crich
At one end of the village is the Red Lion pub, tearooms, sweet shop and ice cream parlour. A little further up is a bandstand and children's play area as well as a workshop viewing gallery. At the other end of the tramline are some more outdoor picnic areas, as well as a fantastic Woodland Walk and Sculpture Trail which winds its way back down towards the bandstand in the center of the village. 

During this visit we didn't go on the Woodland Walk or Sculpture Trail as the weather just wasn't meant to be, but from our previous visit I can tell you its a lovely walk. You can view a range of sculptures which are carved by local artists. 

Trams and Buses at Crich Tramway
At Crich Tramway Village they host a variety of events and one of the main reasons for us visiting at the weekend was they had a London Transport event on where they had old London buses and taxis. Jack absolutely loves transport so it was perfect for him to not only see the trams but the old buses too. 

Upon arrival at Crich you are given an old penny which you exchange on the tram for a ticket which entitles you to all day travel upon the trams so you can ride upon the various ones they have out on the day. Jack loved riding on the trams and since coming home has told various people about visiting the trams and buses. We rode up and down the line various times, you can walk it too, and Jack enjoyed watching the other trams go past as we sat aboard. 

Crich Tramway  Museum
There is a children's play area which has play equipment for 0-10years. Jack spent ages playing in this area and took a lot of bribery to get him out of there. The play area is located next to the museum exhibition which Jack also had fun in. Theres plenty to learn about for the older people but little activities to keep the small ones occupied too. 
As I said in my previous post about Crich I have no interest at all in trams and I have enjoyed it both on my previous visit as well as this visit. There is so much to see and do for everyone. 
We had a fantastic day out yet again at Crich Tramway Village, there's plenty to see and do around. 

During 2015 Crich is open daily from Saturday 28th March until Sunday 1st November.

Tickets cost £14.00 for adults,  £11.00 for seniors (60+), £8.00 children (4-15years) or £37.00 for a family ticket of 2 adults and 3 children. What makes this more worth while is you can get free return admission for a whole year on full price tickets. Rides on the tram and parking is also included within the price. 
Please Note: We received free admission for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own
