It is with regret that the Trustees of Shipley Glen Tramway have taken the decision to close the Tramway for the foreseeable future.
This decision has not been taken lightly but after careful consideration of the guidelines issued by government.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this decision may cause but it has been forced upon us and look forward to welcoming everyone to the Tramway hopefully in the near future.
Unfortunately our future plans are now in jeopardy.
It looks like the Easter Bunnies will stay safe in their burrows and the Chickens safe in their coups.
We were looking forward to our 125th anniversary, but sadly this has probably succumbed to the vagrancies of the Corona virus . We had hoped to be putting on a number of events to mark this occasion.
The tramway opened to the public on the 18th May 1895.
We shall be looking to marking the occasion sometime in the future.
Look out for the programme.
CC payments are easier for you and us.

Closed on the 5th January. Sundays only from 12th January 12:00 to 16:00 hrs until
28th March, then
Saturday & Sunday 12:00 to 16:30 hrs
The trams run continually during these times so we cannot pre-book seats.

Please note for schools and party bookings at other times, email us and we will try to accommodate your needs.
Prams and bikes are welcome - we just want you to enjoy the tramway !
We are wheelchair friendly with ramps at both stations.
We can carry most manual wheelchairs in the trams, but we are unable to accommodate larger powered chairs.
Dogs, accompanied by well behaved owners are welcome too
We are always pleased to have school visits or special bookings (if volunteers are available)
Email us on email@example.com and let us know
