There is good access, with no steps, for wheelchairs to both stations and platforms with only a low step onto the trams. There is a maximum slope of 1 in 6 which is at the bottom station access.

Wheelchairs and push chairs can be carried on the trams.

Please note that we cannot guarantee to carry passengers who arrive at a station after the advertised time of the last tram, even if the passenger has a return ticket.

The 1895 one penny would be worth about £1.20 at today’s value.
