East Anglia Transport Museum announces reopening plans

The latest heritage tramway to announce a reopening is the East Anglia Transport Museum which will be open for the first time in 2020 on Sunday 9th August and then subsequently every Thursday and Sunday until further notice.

The museum will be open between 1200 and 1630 on each Thursday and Sunday with last admission at 1530.

Numbers will be limited on site and there won’t be the facility to pre-book entrance so it will be a case of first come, first served into the museum. Once the temporary lower limit is reached no other visitors will be allowed access to the museum, although if it is full it is suggested that you try again later.

Face coverings will have to be worn on board the trams, trolleybuses and railway as well as in the shop or café (usual exemptions apply). Volunteers will be directing visitors on and off the vehicles and anyone visiting is asked to make sure they take notice of standard social distancing advice.

Contact details of at least one person in a group will also be taken to aid the NHS Track and Trace scheme.

Elsewhere, heritage lines at Crich, Seaton, the Manx Electric Railway and the Volk’s Electric Railway are already back up and running whilst Blackpool has announced Heritage Tram Tours will return over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
