The village – home to the National Tramway Museum – sees vintage trams, some originally from Sheffield, run along a vintage street, climbing a mile and a half of track which offers sweeping views of the surrounding countryside of the Derbyshire.
You can discover the Woodland Walk & Sculpture Trail, before visiting the exhibitions and the Workshop Viewing Gallery, where you can observe the restorations of vintage trams.
The large exhibition hall features a century of streetcars, electric-age drawn horses, and an exhibit exploring the life and work of Michael Holroyd Smith.
A smaller exhibition, The Mobile Post Box – Mail by Tram, located behind the facade of the Derby Assembly Rooms, explores how, in the early 20th century, trams became mobile postboxes, as well as some of the challenges that had to be overcome to provide the service. .
New this season is the refurbished Cabmen’s Shelter in Wakebridge, which was originally used for cab drivers in Bradford from 1877 for almost 100 years.
For a shopping spree, The Forge Gift Shop offers mementos from your visit, and the traditional confectionery lets you buy your old favorites quarterly.
A series of special events are also planned for the new season.
These include the Roaring Twenties on 10th July and Dinosaur Day on 16th July, as well as old favorites such as the Great British Seaside event from 28th May to 4th June, Classic Motorcycle Day on 3rd July and the Steampunk weekend on September 10 and 11.
We have three day tickets for two adults and up to three children to give away. These are valid for the 2022 season which runs until October 30, 2022, excluding the 1940s event and a private event on June 11.
