The current station comprises a single track, with platforms on both sides. One platform is used for boarding, the other for exiting the tram. As the Peak Tram is a major Hong Kong tourist attraction, long queues are common in front of the turnstiles at Garden Road Terminus.
The Garden Road Station for the Peak Tram opened in 1889. In 1935 a new terminus was built along with the St John's Apartments: a reinforced concrete building, with eight studio flats and a two-bedroom penthouse. In 1964 the apartments were demolished to make way for a modern 14-storey commercial and residential building . This building was in turn replaced by the current 22-storey building.
