Facilities

The following facilities are normally available on our Trolleydays:

    • Ample FREE car parking
    • Reserved spaces near the Museum entrance for disabled persons’ parking
    • Level and wheelchair access to most areas Show More

      Most of the Museum buildings are accessible to wheelchair users and people with limited mobility; parts of our depot building are however inaccessible.
      We have two wheelchairs for visitors to use and an accessible toilet, including an adjustable changing table for persons with special needs.
      Because of their historic design we regret we cannot accommodate wheelchairs on our trolleybuses or motorbuses, but we have aids to assist boarding and alighting. Our staff will be happy to give you any assistance.

       
    • Coach parking
    • Card payment facilities
    • Parent & baby room
    • 5-rated café Show More

      Our Tea Trolley cafe is managed and staffed by trained Trolleybus Museum volunteers and has a hygiene rating of 5 (the highest you can get!). It is hailed for its freshly-prepared, good-quality, wholesome food at affordable prices and its friendly service. With a range of hot and cold drinks available, the cakes are a particular
      favourite amongst visitors.
      We believe in Good Quality, Value-for-Money – and Satisfied Customers!

       
       
       

      The Museum Shop carries a selection of confectionery, cold drinks and Thaymar ice cream as well as a range of toys, gifts and souvenirs. For the enthusiast we have a large stock of books, models and DVDs with the emphasis on trolleybuses but also including other forms of transport. We often have secondhand books and magazines available for sale as well.
       
    • Picnic area
    • Children’s outdoor play area Show More

      We have a playground for younger visitors. There are more games in the Tram Shelter, which we rescued from Huddersfield, or in the Family Room (see below).
       
    • Family Room and children’s indoor play area – including a new SOFT PLAY zone
    • Sales Stalls Show More

      On most open days you’ll find at least one sales stall provided by other societies inside the depot building, raising funds for the preservation and restoration of their vehicles by selling secondhand books, magazines, models, photographs and other transport ephemera. At our larger events, particularly the Sandtoft Gathering they’re usually joined by 25-30 other stalls!

Dogs

Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a short lead. Please clean up after your animal.
