We operate a vintage tramway through Manchester’s Heaton Park, the biggest Park in Greater Manchester and the largest municipal park in all of Europe.

The most frequently asked questions are answered below – for anything else, please click on the menu above!

When do you operate?

***Tramway and museum reopens June 15!***

What time do you operate?

The first tram will depart our Lakeside terminus at approximately 12:00pm, with the service finishing at approximately 4:30pm, Trams will operate every 20 minutes. Our museum and shop will also be open during this time period.

How much is a tram ride?

We offer two types of ticket – a return trip (one whole trip of the tramway, dropping you back off where you boarded), and a multi-ride ticket, enabling you to stay all day long.

Can I bring a dog on the trams?

Well behaved dogs are more than welcome on our tramcars, and do not pay an additional fare.

Can I bring a buggy/pram or bike on the trams?

Buggies and prams can only be carried if folded down – there simply isn’t space for them to be carried unfolded on our vintage tramcars. 

Children’s bikes and scooters can be carried subject to space on the tramcar – the trams are too small to carry full size adult bikes. 

Where is best to park for the trams?

Please use the Sheepfoot Lane car park, postcode M25 2SW.

Can I drive the trams?

Yes – provided you are over 21 and have a car driving licence, please see our Tram Driving Experience page for more information!

I have limited mobility – can I get on the tramcars?

Unfortunately, our tramcars were not constructed with the carriage of wheelchairs in mind, so, at present, it is not possible to board in a wheelchair.

We do have a step available on the tramcars to make them easier to board from ground level.

Our museum building is fully accessible using the ramps provided.
