Crich Tramway Village - Matlock
Voted East Midlands ‘Best Day Out’ by viewers of BBC East Midlands Today, Crich Tramway Village has developed into one of Derbyshire's most unique family attractions. Trams run to and fro down a cobbled street past the former Derby Assembly rooms before passing under the Bowes-Lyon Bridge and climbing a mile and a half of track that provides breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.

Experience the fascinating Woodland Walk & Sculpture Trail which winds its way back to the village or remain on the tram and be dropped off outside The Red Lion Pub and Tearooms before visiting the fascinating Workshop Viewing Gallery.

Indoor and Outdoor Play + Picnic area:
There are also picnic areas and and for the more adventurous there is the outdoor play area suitable for older children.

We are excited to reveal that for 2014 season we have a new children’s indoor play area! The new play area has replaced the old Discovery Depot and has followed on the tram theme. There is a separate soft play area for toddlers, climbing frame, ball pit and plenty of seating for parents and grandparents.

Woodland Sculpture Walk:
Funded by the Countryside Agency, the Woodland Walk & Sculpture Trail allows visitors to stretch their legs on a trail that winds its way through native woodland now dotted with sculptures by local artists.

With breath taking views across the Derwent Valley and Derbyshire Countryside the Woodland Walk is the perfect place to escape for a picnic or to while away the hours surrounded by nature. Look out for the sculptures which lurk around every corner such as the Giant Wood Ant and the Green Man.

If you wish to explore further, why not hire a backpack which is full of fun facts and activities to make the most of your time in the woodland area.
