We have two major events during the year, our Santa Specials during December and our Easter Bunny Hunt at Easter.

Dates and details are posted on this site and on advertising posters.



In addition we open the Tramway to special groups by appointment. (School Groups, History Societies, etc.).


The tram has also been home to a marriage proposal and a wedding.


Please contact us for more details or to make a booking.


We can arrange to give presentations about the Tramway.


On 22/23 April we will be joining the WHW Celebrations taking place in Saltaire and beyond and we will also be celebrating the beginnings of the Tramway back in 1895.

Passengers showing a pre decimal penny or half-penny can travel free and will receive a commemorative ticket.

Volunteers will be getting into the spirit of the Victorian era.


On 30 April the Tour de Yorkshire will pass through Saltaire. Watch the race and then ride the tram.
