Would you like to drive one of our trams?

We now offer 2 different tram driving experience packages throughout the season.

Taster TDE’s cost £25 and are a half hour session covering 2 round trips on a short section of double track on our tramway.

Full TDE’s cost £150 and include a full 5 hours of driving and multiple round trips along the full length of our line.

Why not read this article by Christopher Brindle who did a whole a whole day experience with us.

Both packages are carried out under the supervision of our experienced instructors and can be bought for a specific date.

Unfortunately, We are no longer providing gift vouchers as we have found that a lot of them have been left unclaimed, or that there has been issues confirming dates.

Participants must be over 21 years of age with a full driving license and be able to stand unaided for the entire session. Additional passengers are allowed for the price of a return ticket.

Our full day experiences are now being arranged on a ad-hoc basis via email rather than via the website, as this proved difficult for us around volunteer availability.
If you are interested in purchasing a Full Day Tram Driver Experience, Please email for further details

Heaton Park Tramway and its officers reserve the right to terminate any experience at any time without cause or refund.
