Don't forget to check out our upcoming events

Come along and check out the Tramway this weekend.

We are busy at the moment repainting the trams so they will not be at their most splendid, but nevertheless the ride is well worth it.

Maintenance never stops!

What's to do then?

Man in a Grotto. Santas new house.

The paint's going on!

Drilling a new section of rail.

Jonathon Walker from Bagnalls with Richard Freeman Shipley Glen Tramway

Our thanks go to Bangnalls of Shipley who kindly painted the chassis of the trams. This was done as part of their community support programme.
The chassis should now be good for another ten years.

Please note:

The trams run continuously during opening times, so we cannot take pre-bookings.

Last tram at 16:30

You will be pleased to know that we now accept credit cards for all payments.

We cannot guarantee a ride if you arrive after 16:30.
