A super easy way to get into Manchester, whether you’re using heavy rail, or light rail. Since its renovation it’s also much lighter, and more inviting.

Victoria is a busy hub made better by recent renovation. The tram station is immediately adjacent which can take you smoothly to other city centre attractions.

This railway station is a great mix of old and new. The old building is there in all its grandeur with iron and glass canopy, presenting names of towns and cities in the glass. Step inside and the old concourse is still present with an...More
