Its a transport hub and does that well. Current redevelopment is providing a renaissance of style, both modern and historic. A place t pass through like very one else and little reason to linger longer than a few photos of the magnificent edifice and quaint signage in the interior. Free and fast

Historical building on the outside but just a train, and now a tram, station inside with a coffee shop, a bar and public toliets (which charge 30p entrance). Worth a quick walk past architectural wise but not much else. There's still a fair amount of building work going on in and around the station expanding the tram network. However, it's... More

Before when walking into the station it gave a dull feeling now the combination of modern and old style is perfect it gives an amazing vibe and the station looks very pretty!

The station is currently undergoing renovations and I'm severely upset it doesn't have a Costa but that's my personal vent! It's a lovely and lively all building with lots of character that is an interesting part of central manchester.

It's a mess these days, they are transforming the station. To a more up to date building and service, the roof seem huge on the tracks.

this is one of the 2 railway stations in Manchester, historically this has been the station dealing with the north whilst piccadilly dealt with the south, but recently, Piccadilly has become the main station in manchester, and this is just the poorer relation.

Victoria station has suffered much indignity in recent years, culminating in the imposition of a totally inappropriate new roof which covers the tram lines inflicted on long-suffering commuters to Oldham and Bury in place of the former trains services. Incredibly, latest developments have made the station even worse, ruining the interior appearance of the station, while doing nothing to remedy... More

Still a way to go with the refurbishment of this historic station. It's great it still has the 'Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway' sign, and the mural of places you used to be able to go from the station is very impressive. The new roof over the tram stop is most impressive.

Well I saw Victoria station a few years ago from the outside and i loved it. I traveled to the station this week from Newcastle and was met with a building site. Even worse when we traveled back home from there not a shop to buy a newspaper or magazine. I Why didn't they install a barrow to sell these... More
