Crich Tramway Village offers visitors a journey back in time – and we have three family tickets for lucky Star readers to win.

The village – home of the National Tramway Museum – sees vintage trams, some originally from Sheffield, run along a period street, climbing a mile and a half of track that provides breathtaking views of the surrounding Derbyshire countryside.

You can experience the Woodland Walk & Sculpture Trail, before visiting the exhibitions and Workshop Viewing Gallery, where you can watch restorations of the vintage trams.

The Great Exhibition Hall features a Century of Trams, from horse drawn to the electric era as well as an exhibition exploring the life and work of Michael Holroyd Smith.

A smaller exhibition, The Mobile Post Box – Mail by Tram, set behind the Derby Assembly Rooms façade, explores how, in the early 20th century, tramcars became mobile post boxes, plus some of the challenges which had to be overcome to provide the service.

New for this season is the refurbished Cabmen’s Shelter at Wakebridge, which was originally used for cabbies in Bradford from 1877 for nearly 100 years.

For a spot of retail therapy, The Forge Gift Shop offers mementoes of your visit, and the traditional sweet shop enables you to by your old favourites by the quarter.
