Crich Tramway Village and National Tramway Museum
Crich Tramway Village is the recreated historic village that is the setting for the National Tramway Museum in Derbyshire. The village is set around a period street, with several re-built buildings from all over the country, including the façade of the former Assembly Rooms from Derby and the Red Lion Inn from Stoke-on-Trent. The site has been developed at a derelict limestone quarry.

The museum has over 60 tramcars from various locations; about seventeen vehicles are currently in operational condition, with more on display or being restored. Every operating day, the museum selects between two and four trams and operates them over its line to Glory Mine, via Wakebridge. The village also includes a cafe, old-style sweetshop, and the museum's tram depots. There is also a re-created Victorian park, children’s play area, woodland walk and sculpture trail.
