We have been to the Tramway Museum twice with our grand daughters age 5 and 7 and had no trouble whatsoever filling a full day. We rode on the trams, walked the Woodland Walk, used both the indoor soft play area and the outdoor adventure play area. Had lunch at the Red Lion and a delicious ice cream. Plus a... More

We went with our 3.5 year old on a week day and thought it was great. There's lots to do and see. We went on the trams (of course) and was great to see the drivers in traditional smart uniform and they were very friendly and helpful. We did the wood walk and enjoyed finding the wooden sculptures, our little... More

Make sure you bring breakfast and lunch with you!!!! Breakfast choice was cheese and bacon slice ( which had sold out or sausage rolls! We fancied a panini lunch which was advertised "From 12-3 and were lucky enough to get the last two at 12.45p.m." We had come with a group of around 40 Classic cars and they knew we... More

Went here a while ago and at first thought it a bit pricey. However, there was lots to see and do - including guided tours and rides on several different trams. There's also a nice cafe serving food and an historic pub if you need refreshment.

I have to agree with other posts that the admission fee is a bit steep. For those with children if the weather is fine you could spin it out with the outdoor play area & lovely woodland walk. On a cold wet day we almost had the place to ourselves. The collection of trams is quite outstanding, with plenty of... More

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit. We believe that the admission fee is good value, as you can return as many times as you wish within 12 months (excluding for the World War II events). More

Thank you for your review. Yes we are smaller than Beamish, but keep adding to our facilities and if you include the Woodland Walk and Sculpture Trail, you can spend 3 - 4 hours here. More

We enjoyed our visit but feel it was a bit pricey for what is there. We appreciate all the work that goes onto restoring the trams but there isnt much else to do. It would be nice if there were more people in charactor like the other places as it makes it more realistic. Having said that it is worth... More

Thank you for your review. We feel that offering free return within 12 months (excluding to the 1940s events) it offers good value. There is also the Woodland Walk and Sculpture Trail as well as the trams and exhibitions, but perhaps you would enjoy one of our events, such as the a World War II or Edwardian events, when we...

Entry gives you access for a year and is great value. Free parking, tram rides and two choices of snack/ lunch outlets. Good outdoor spaces and play area. Would recommend.

Thank you for your feedback. We apologise for the responses of our staff. As the trams are vintage trams, they weren't built to take pushchairs, so we had a buggy shelter built for this purpose. We are surprised at the staff response to the soft play area, as all our regular staff and volunteers know where it is. We take... More
