The Merseyside Tramway Preservation Society is one of the UK's most important tramway preservation societies, with a major collection of restored and working vehicles. Its collection amply illustrates the development of Britain's first generation tramways from the horse and steam tram era to a fully enclosed electric bogie car. There's also a single deck continental tram and an overhead maintenance wagon from the 1940's.

The historic vehicles operate on the mile long Wirral Heritage Tramway with its spectacular views of Liverpool's world-famous waterfront and perform a unique educational and recreational function, so members of the public and school parties can enjoy a nostalgic journey back in time for a modest fare.
