The new part for the trams is light and airy and clean but the Rail area is so poor. Dull dismal dreary and smelly with fumes. This really must be classed as one of the UKs worst stations (BR side)

One of the main stations in Manchester. Really easy to get to and from the centre. Walking distance. Has a couple little shops, all you need plus toilets.

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

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.
