Following information from the City Council and the Park Management, we have been requested to close down all activity at the tramway with immediate effect. This includes not just tramway operation, but all activities undertaken. Although the Park itself will remain open at present. Sadly this means as well as our regular operation our 40th birthday event on the last weekend of March is also postponed as is as our tram driving experiences. Anyone with a Tram Driver Experience booked for April will be contacted within the next few weeks to rebook. Well make sure to keep you all up to date, with the work we’ve been getting on with recently and when we will be reopening.
Anyone who has purchased a Tram Driver Experience is asked to email Info@HPTramway.co.uk to re-book their session for later on in the year.
Heaton Park Tramway is run by the Manchester Transport Museum Society. We have a variety of electric trams some in store and others operational and running on a stretch of track dating back to the original Manchester Tramway which used to operate into the park. Since opening in 1980, we have extended the line three times and run from Middleton Road to the boating lake.
