I use this train station a lot and it's a good station. Plenty of staff on hand to offer a friendly service. Plenty of coffee/food outlets to use when waiting for a train. Lovely to see the station displaying poppies just prior to the exit.

Manchester Victoria station is very nice and modern. The station is historic and very easy to access the city by train.

I love the old booking offices and the brick buildings BUT that new (to me) roof??? It looks like a polytunnel or the Eden Project

Well organised and quite high level visibility of friendly security staff which was appreciated. Easy access station, much better than some others in the city.
