Harrington Road tram stop is a light rail stop in South Norwood in the London Borough of Croydon in the southern suburbs of London. Harrington Road is in a residential area, and along with Woodside tram stop is the nearest tram stop to the town of South Norwood.

The tram stop is served by Tramlink route 2, which connects central Croydon with Beckenham. The stop is at ground level on double track, with platforms on each side of the track. Immediately to the north of the stop, the route becomes single track and turns sharply to the east, joining the trackbed of the existing railway line between Crystal Palace and Beckenham Junction stations. The two tracks (Tramlink and Network Rail) run alongside each other, occupying the site of what was previously a double track railway.

Transport for London have plans to extend the Tramlink system to Crystal Palace. These plans are known as Extension D or Tramlink route 4, and would involve a junction to the north of Harrington Road, with the extension joining the existing railway in the opposite direction to the current line 2.
