Delivering a World Class Visitor Economy Within Derbyshire: Buxton Tram

Buxton tram has been saved thanks to business support funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).   For specialist tour company Discover Buxton, a new link with Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire (MPDD) and access to a business grant via the ERDF-funded Delivering a World Class Visitor Economy Within Derbyshire programme, couldn’t have come at a better time. 

Managing Director Netta Christie explains how becoming a member of MPDD saved a key area of the business – the operation of their vintage Buxton tram: “We simply wouldn’t have been able to operate the tram part of the business without getting the grant. We’ve used the money towards funding various modifications to the vehicle – making it safe for visitors to use as well as augmenting the visitor experience."
