Ever wondered how our famous Heritage Trams make their way on to the tracks? Well now you can see the inner-workings of our Heritage Tram Centre and hear just how we keep the wheels turning on our wonderful world-famous Heritage Trams.
You’ll be guided around our tram sheds and engineering workshops by one of our resident experts who will talk you through each area and the work we’re doing to preserve our history for years to come.
All money collected from our unique tours will contribute to the preservation of our trams for future years. Our fundraiser explains our challenges and ambitions for the future.
Family Depot Tours
Brand new to 2022, give your children a history experience they’ll remember for a lifetime! Our Family Depot Tour gives the whole family a chance to not only get to see the home of our Heritage trams, like the popular Western train and Rocket Tram, but also experience what it is like to ride these vehicles, by sitting in the driver’s seat!
Each of these trams has a unique story about their past, some are up to 90 years old and one is over 120! As you’ll imagine, they’ve had quite a life and you can enjoy stories told by our tour guides about our special vehicle’s past, present and future.
The 45-minute tour will capture different aspects of our Tram depot, diving behind the scenes to see what makes a tram tick whilst exploring all the work you don’t usually see. You’ll explore our tram shed, which houses over 40 different heritage trams. This is a history lesson to ‘WOW’ the whole family!
