The Merseyside Tramway Preservation Society is one of Britain's best known transport restoration groups and operates a Heritage Tramway from Woodside Ferry Terminal to the Wirral Transport Museum.
Birkenhead is the historic home of the first street tramway in Europe, an idea from America. It was here on 29th August 1860 that tramcars first ran from Woodside to Birkenhead Park, a service that continued until 1937. The revived Birkenhead Tramway began in 1995 and it runs a variety of vehicles old and new, linking the museum and the ferry at Woodside whenever the museum is open.

Trams operate 1pm-5pm Saturday and Sunday (Wednesday to Sunday during the summer - please check the website for any late changes).
