Ride the Trams
Please note that we are maintaining some health & safety measures as Covid19 guidelines ease. Face coverings are RECOMMENDED on our trams (unless medically exempt or for children under 11).
Trams depart regularly from town end and will return to Stephenson’s Place with stops at Wakebridge (for the mining display, Cabmen’s Shelter, Octagon, worm toilet and Woodland Walk) and Glory Mine.(For public footpath to the Sherwood Foresters Memorial).
Dogs on a lead are accepted, provided that owners clean up after them. They are not permitted in the cafe or the indoor children’s play area, but can go everywhere else, including on the floor of the lower decks of trams.
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 if requested at least one week in advance of your visit – 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.
