As well as the Tube, trams are a popular way of getting around in London. The tram network started in 1860 with horse-drawn trams, but now, the tram network is run by modern trams and runs through the city. After being shut down in 1952, it was reopened in 2000 and now allows you to travel between Beckenham, Croydon and Wimbledon. The trams run every 10 minutes, and all trams are step-free, making them easy to access.
Tickets for buses can be used on trams, too, as they are considered as part of the bus system. If you don’t have a bus ticket, however, a ticket is £1.30 with an oyster card or £2.20 in cash. You can also purchase passes for one week, one month or one year. What’s more, children are able to travel for free! It’s a convenient and cheap way of getting around some parts of London.
