Have been many times and can’t say enough nice things about Crich.

The trams, the depot and the staff are all wonderful.

Lots of people seem go on the trams and miss the other things like the Woodland Walk or the Great Exhibition Hall...you need to take time to wander round these and go up to the workshop viewing area.

Being interested in trams helps but even if you’re not that bothered, it’s a lovely place to wander around for an hour or two.....think of it like a nice country park with its own transport.

Unforgettable day out which both adults and children enjoyed. We got to try a few teams out. The drivers and conducters are all volunteers, great to see community spirit. Can't wait to visit again

I took a group of 75 adults. Lots of 'trammy' things to do - especially for the more active - with as many tram rides as can be taken. Huge portions of food in Rita's Tea Rooms. Welcoming and friendly staff at the ticket office. Some volunteers maybe a little 'jobsworthy' and unnecessarily officious.

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your group visit and thank you for bringing the group to Crich. Most of our volunteers are very good and polite, so we are sorry that you have experienced some over zealous behaviour.
We hope you will consider returning either as an individual or with another group. We re-open on Saturday 16th March 2019.

This isn't the first time we've visited, but it was our first visit for the Starlight Extravaganza event and it was still as good as any other time of the year.

Bonus if you're an English Heritage member as you basically get in as a buy one get one free if you attend as a couple, I think it's half price if you attend as a single and family so definitely worth getting an English Heritage membership to take advantage of the discount.

The Starlight Extravaganza was beautifully done, there were lots of trams out and the lighting was great.
There are different events on each day but we attended on the Friday, which was the Neon Disco, and a lot of fun for kiddies. There were other things going on in the village too.

As it was just after Halloween when we attended, the Halloween decorations were still up which gave it an extra touch.

Definitely worth a visit, but honestly even if you cannot attend during an event this is a good place to visit all year round.

We had a great day out here today with 2 year old grandson. We had lots of tram rides and there was nice lighting and it was excellent value for the entrance fee. We will definitely be back as I want to have another look at the amazing trams

An interesting place to visit and a nice weather day is best. Many of the Trams are displayed in a large shed with volunteer staff explaining about them all and the surrounding buildings and other features around the 'Village". It also includes a tram ride on one line as often as you wish. Unfortunately being Overseas visitors we could not advantage of the unlimited return within a 12 month period. We were only able to stay half a day but if wanting to take advantage of the Woodland Walk & Sculpture Trail you can certainly spend a whole day there. It is a nice place to visit for all family members.

A truly delightful event, combination of the historic tramway and the lighting for an evening event was very memorable. Friendly and welcoming place to visit and the staff and volunteers work really hard to give you a good day out.

This is a great family day out and worth it, you get an unlimited return within 12 months in the price paid so great value.

We went on the 30th October and arrived early plenty of parking in a large car park. We purchased a family ticket and we found that there was a galactic day and the theme was Star Wars.

The village is huge with plenty to do and you are given old money to purchase your tram tickets. There were plenty of trams to choose from and each trip you take you get a ticket so plenty for the kids to collect.

There are a couple of cafe which are reasonably price, there is an interactive area for the kids teaching them the history of trams.

There was a light saber show with a Jedi and a storm trooper whilst I understand this is half term and it is something for the kids, it would have been nice to have some traditional Victorian stalls / games to make it authentic. This did not spoil the day just an observation and an opportunity missed.

Overall definitely worth visiting and will be back.

We only popped in, but as a family you could make a day of it. Riding the trams is fun - but take a coat if it’s chilly. We walked around the nature trail too. The pub was doing a great trade in food as well as beer. Coffee tea chocolate there too. Would go again
