Ride the Trams

 

Ride the trams

On arrival collect your old penny to pay the conductor your tram fare, and receive a ticket you can use all day. Trams depart regularly from town end, calling at various stops along the mile long track.

We are sorry that our vintage trams were not designed to take pushchairs and buggies, so we kindly request that these are left in the Buggy Shelter at Town End while you enjoy your tram ride.

For wheelchair users, we have a specially adapted tram, which operates on request – see Wheelchair Access below.

Health and Safety: We want you to enjoy your day with us, so there are a few things which you could think about that will make the day safer for you. Please do not lean outside the tram and ensure that items such as ‘selfie- sticks’, camera-poles and umbrellas remain within the tram at all times and do not affect other passengers. Please do not use these items on the upper deck of open-topped trams.
