Manchester Victoria Train Station
No other train station in Manchester captures England’s rich railway history the way Manchester Victoria train station does.
The station features an Edwardian, neo-Baroque façade with a glorious iron and glass canopy. Its mosaic-tiled map depicting former network routes underwent repairs as well.
While it still bears its original name, Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, it has undergone extensive renovations over the years. These renovations have seen it transform into a significant east-west interchange, not only in the Greater Manchester area but also in the entire northern England area.
The station is attached to the Manchester Arena, next to the National Football Museum. Passengers can take the short 15-minute walk to the Northern Quarter, which hosts trendy cafes and upmarket designer boutiques.
Manchester Victoria train station is about 10 kilometres from Manchester Airport, though you can hop on a train and be there in less than half an hour.
