Crich announce plans to reopen for 2021 season

Following on from last week’s government announcement on the “roadmap” to relaxing restrictions there has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes at various heritage tramways to get ready for the belated opening this year. The first tramway to publicly announce their plans is the Crich Tramway Village which will have limited opening from Monday 12th April (the week after Easter).

With reduced admission prices in place the plan is for this limited opening to be in place until 16th May 2021 when it is hoped it may be possible to extend opening further. During the period between 12th April and 16th May there will be limited tram rides and only outside areas will be open to the public. The museum will only be open between Saturday and Thursday each week.

But to take into consideration the limited offering available special Single Day Entrance tickets will be available costing £8 for adults (usual admission price is £19), Children will be £6 and a Family ticket (2 adults, 3 children) is £20.  These tickets will only be available on the day and cannot be booked in advance. Akthough these special prices have been introduced normal tickets will also be available which allow you to return for a unlimited number of times within one year.

Following this first period the season should look something like this (although much of this will be dependent on whether restrictions are eased as currently planned, with the continued evolution of Covid-19 things have had a tendency to quickly change of course):

Monday 17th May-Sunday 20th June: Inside areas opened. Crich will be open Saturday to Thursday plus Friday 4th June. Covid-19 measures will still be in place.

Monday 21st June-Thursday 15th July: Open Saturdays to Thursdays only. 21st June is currently the date in the government “roadmap” when most restrictions may be lifted but is subject to change.

Dates later in the season have not been yet to the Crich website with confirmation to follow.

    Crich have published their planned opening dates for the rest of the year. I just hope that we are in a position to reduce or end social distancing as the limited tram rides will discourage people from visiting (not only Crich but other railways and Tramways). Certainly I’m not making a 3 hour journey for 1 ride.

      Article has now been updated with more dates although information beyond 15th July now isn’t on the Crich website. We will just have to see what transpires over the coming months as the way things have happened throughout this pandemic plans can change very quickly.

      I just can’t wait for all this to end, my list of places I want to visit is getting longer.
