Crich Tramway Village is the recreated historic village that is the setting for the National Tramway Museum in Derbyshire.
The village is set around a period street, with several re-built buildings from all over the country, including the facade of the former Assembly Rooms from Derby and the Red Lion Inn from stoke on Trent. The village also includes a cafe, old-style sweetshop, and the museum's tram depots.
The Village's collection not only covers buildings, but also many items of street furniture, for example the fence and gates adorning the entrance to the tram depot, which come from the long demolished Fruit & Vegetable Market in the Bull Ring, Birmingham.
Admission for Adults is £13 and includes:
Free return admission for 12 months Car parking Exhibition Hall George Stephenson Discovery Centre Tram Depots Indoor and Outdoor Play areas Unlimited Vintage Tram Rides Use of Picnic Areas Woodland Walk

Bring a pack up and we can have a picnic lunch!
I have arranged a meeting point near to Derby City Centre where can meet up and where we can also leave cars. It will also save on fuel costs if we can travel together. I will e-mail out details to those attending nearer the time.
Anyone that lives along the A6 - Allestree, Duffield, Belper etc. we may be able to pick up along the way.
If however you would prefer to make your own way there and meet at Crich, that's fine.
