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.

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

Victoria Station was a few years ago voted the worst station in England. Not any more, as it has definitely improved with a new spectacular roof and a proper connection to the trams. \Even the Starbucks is very much above the ordinary, being in the old Refreshment Room. And newly-refurbished Class 319 electric trains have started to appear, starting with... More

A very pretty station, very clean and easy to find your platform. There are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat or magazine should you need to. My only complaint would be the installation of coin operated tolls put on the toilets. I can understand the need to keep unwanted people out, but this can be a huge... More

Always go through Victoria on my way to town as I use metrolink to get in to the city centre rather than bus. A lot of work has gone in to the station to improve it overall and can see the benefits, a combined old and new although am not a fan of the bubble roof I do like other... More
