Full Day Tram Experience

£225 per person (lunch included)

This unique opportunity allows you to drive one of Beamish’s fleet of beautifully restored trams, travelling around the 1 1/2 mile circular track through the stunning Museum site which includes The 1900s Town.

The day starts off with a member of our expert Tramway team giving you a behind the scenes look at the tram depot as they take you through the theory of driving a tram. You will then assist them with the safety checks and preparation of a tram before taking it out on the Tramway.

Very knowledgeable tutor, very well presented. Great experience, everyone must try.

This is a hands-on day where you take the controls of the tram, driving on the Tramway and exploring the 4 passing loops and token system.

We have a selection of trams for you to use on your experience, depending on availability on the day.
