Blackpool was the first town in Britain to have a tramway system. It began in 1885 and it is the only tramway to have continued uninterrupted to the present day. As well as being a functional working transport system the trams add greatly to the charm of Blackpool. The present fleet dates mainly from the 1930's with newer vehicles brought into service in the 1980's. In addition, there are several rebuilt older vehicles, as well as vintage trams in regular operation. Today's tramway is 11 miles long extending from Fleetwood to Starr gate.
