Beautiful building set in the heart of Manchester opposite is the Football Museum, at the side is The PrintWorks. Minutes walk from the centre of Manchester. Once the renovations are done I'm sure it will be a well used station

This is a long review but it had to be said As someone who grew up commuting to manchester i can say that victoria station is by far the worst station in manchester (and possibly all of england) in services. They care more about renovating than serving customers when they money used could of been used on better staff. The... More

At first blush it is a blur with people rushing to and fro, but don't let it scare you. It is a one stop place for just about all your needs. Grocery stores, restaurants, fast food, all types of transportation lines, hotels nearby, and a great place to grab a snack, sit and people watch.

Been to Victoria on several occasions. Great building and connected perfectly to the Phones 4 U arena. The pub there is pretty decent as well if you are only there for half an hour.

Travelled through this station a few times. The building is impressive from the outside and some nice outlets inside. Not really an attraction so would not travel to see however if passing through, it is fine.

This is a very busy rail station but having considerable investment as part of the major Northern Hub work. At the moment nothing special with works everywhere but it will improve to be a modern rail station within a Victorian building
