Crich Tramway Village to Open Outside Areas in April
Crich Tramway Village, home to the National Tramway Museum, plans to re-open its outside areas from Monday 12th April to Sunday 16th May subject to Covid-19 guidelines.
The Derbyshire attraction will be open Saturdays through to Thursdays from 10am to 4.30pm (last admissions 3pm) under the government guidance for Step 2.
Outside areas including the outdoor playground and woodland walk will be accessible and there will be limited trams running.
General Manager, Dr Mike Galer said:
“The same Covid-19 measures will be in place as we operated last season, including social distancing, hand sanitizing, PPE for staff, screens at information points and tills and take-away catering service, with some outside seating.”
The trams, which are crewed by a team of volunteers, will be limited, and face coverings should be worn as per the national guidance for public transport.
Members of the public will need to book a timed ticket for tram rides on arrival, and there will only be one stop for getting on and alighting the trams, to help ensure the safety of passengers, volunteers and staff.
Face coverings will also be required to be worn in the shops (the same exemptions as for public transport apply).
We have produced a ‘Covid-19 Crich Tramway Village guidance’ sheet, which describes what visitors can expect and this can be downloaded from our website:
In line with other venues, the indoor exhibitions, tram depot and soft play area will remain closed and the numbers in indoor areas such as the shops and on the trams will be limited. Card and Contactless payments are preferred, and full-priced tickets can be purchased online from April.
Marketing Manager, Amanda Blair said: “For the period between 12th April and 16th May we have introduced special day rates, which are payable on arrival. Visitors who still have valid annual tickets or annual membership may use these to return”.
