Manchester Deansgate Train Station

The Manchester Deansgate train station, also known as Knott Mill, is a raised train station in Manchester situated only a kilometre west of Piccadilly. This Victorian station building is also close to the heart of the city’s shopping district.

The station remains largely unchanged and stands as it did when it was first opened in 1849 by the Manchester South Junction and Altrincham Railway. It has received several additions through the years, including the inclusion of a footbridge across Whitworth Street in 1985.

This footbridge connects the station to the Manchester Central Exhibition Complex and its Metrolink tram stop.
