Festivals & Heritage

Step back in time along the recreated period street where you won't have to wait long for the rumble of a vintage tram. ‘Century of Trams’ exhibition in the Great Exhibition Hall will take you on a fascinating journey through a hundred years of tramway development, from 1860 – 1960, taking in horse trams, steam trams and electric trams, ream memorabilia and more.

The Stephenson Discovery Centre, originally used as a smithy and wagon works for George Stephenson’s one metre gauge mineral railway, is now the perfect place to explore the history of trams in the UK. You can learn how overcrowding in expanding towns and cities paved the way for the introduction of trams to Britain in the 1800s, while in the Derby Assembly Rooms you can discover modern tramway systems and how they are being reintroduced into our cities today.

The Woodland Walk offers breathtaking views across the Derwent Valley and Derbyshire Countryside the Woodland Walk, and you can always stop off for refreshments at the Upper Deck Restaurant, or Rita’s Tearooms.

Of course the best way to enjoy a vintage tram is to ride on it. On arrival collect your old penny to pay the conductor for 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, finishing at Glory Mine to enjoy the stunning views of the Derwent valley.
