Central Tramway Company

Sightseeing & Transport


Central Tramway is the oldest surviving tramway company in the country, established in 1881 it is still owned and operated by the same corporate entity that established the Tramway over 100 years ago.

Connecting the busy Foreshore Road and Marine Parade near the town centre the company is proud to have retained much of its rich Victorian engineering and legacy, and to be still fulfilling its primary function of carrying the Scarborough public and visiting holiday makers.
At Central Tramway we celebrate our history and are striving to ensure the tramway's survival for future generations.
The Tramway is normally open for 9 months of the year from mid-February until the end of October. The 3 months shut-down period allows us to maintain the facility to the highest safety standards set out by HM Inspectorate of Mines, a division of the Health and Safety Executive (for more information on safety at the tram visit our page on Engineering & Safety).
