Things to do at the Trolleybus Museum in Sandtoft review
We are full supporters of small charity run attractions and will fully support them as much as we can. This is one of those hidden gems that will bring you a day out very different to most. You need to fully embrace your day out there and ride on the trams at least twice and take their double-decker bus journey around the villages. If you don’t do these things you won’t spend long there. If you do you have yourself a day out.
The main thing to note is that this place is cash only. When you purchase your tickets you get a coin each to exchange for your Trolleybus rides. There is usually two to three trolleybuses in rotation throughout the day.
There is a series of lines around the site which you ride a few times around. At the Trolleybus museum, they also have a 1950’s styled bungalow, a cinema and a miniature railway to look at. You can also walk around the hangar where they store all their trolleybuses (they need to move a few out so people can walk around easier).
It is worth going on the afternoon bus ride around the local villages on one of their double-decker buses. You get a live commentary and it certainly adds to the day out. There is a very small play area that needs some TLC. But hopefully you will visit and they can afford to upgrade this soon. There is part of a bus in the cafe that kids can play in.
