Reeves Corner tram stop is a stop on the Tramlink service in central Croydon. It is normally only served by trams travelling eastbound from Wimbledon to Croydon; trams going in the opposite direction pass the station on the other side of the road without stopping. The complementary stop for westbound trams is Church Street tram stop.

As of May 2019, redevelopment was taking place. Arcadia House, which adjoined the platform, had been demolished and was being replaced by a new high-rise structure known as 'Cairo'.[3]

The name is derived from House of Reeves, a furniture store established in 1867, one of whose buildings was destroyed in the 2011 England riots.[4]

Connections

London Buses routes 157, 264, 407 and 410 serve the tram stop.
