Ideal for access to the arena especially if attending an event there. Nice little pub to get refreshments whilst waiting on your train.

This station is lovely. In some ways historic but with modern facilities. Platforms easy to reach. Not as busy as Picadilly however a extensive coverage of destinations. The metro also stops inside the station. A pleasant station. Entrance though to Manchester arena.

Nice Victorian frontage with a new glass roof over the tram lines. Serves lots of stations to North, East and West of Manchester plus Bury & Rochdate on tram. Not many shops/eateries available but seems to be improving. Free bus available outside for city centre...More

Victoria Station is an old station serving North Manchester. Nothing particularly special. Trains to most destinations. That’s about it

The building, viewed from the outside, is huge and beautiful. But don't forget it is a train station, and not a touristic activity.

Arrived here with friends ready for a girly weekend, but couldn't believe the amount of people bustling around. We spent 20mins trying to find our way out, but I don't think the Prosecco on the journey in helped. All in all a great experience...
