I love Victoria train station it is always clean has a couple of coffee shops and the trams stop here too. Really close to the Football Museum and the Arndale Centre also close to the Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester Evening News Arena is next door. It puts you so close to everything and looks amazing bright and airy.

The main station building is really impressive, with a lovely canopy at one end featuring stained glass destinations. Lots of interesting original features including a huge tiled map of the lines in the north. Inside has been completely redesigned with a tram station alongside the railway.

Very handy free metro bus took us right to the door from Piccadilly but lacking in suitable waiting areas. Toilets were also a bit draughty and need upgrading but I've been in worse stations.
