Manchester Victoria is a train station in central Manchester. It is the city’s second biggest mainline station, after Manchester Piccadilly.
In 2015 a massive redevelopment project was completed. A major element was the addition of a new ‘bubble’ roof. The 8,500 square metre structure consists of 15 steel ribs covered with over 400 EFTE panels. EFTE is a strong polymer also used in the domes at Cornwall’s Eden Project.
Services from this station include trains to York, Liverpool Lime Street, Leeds, Manchester Airport, Rochdale, and Blackburn.
The Victoria Metrolink Station is also here.
Manchester Victoria is situated on Victoria Station Approach/Hunts Bank (postcode M3 1WY) at the northern end of Manchester city centre.
Car parks within easy walking distance include the APCOA Manchester Victoria Station Car Park (Long Millgate), NCP Manchester Arena, and NCP Manchester Printworks.
Free Metroshuttle buses run from outside the station and ply a circular route around the city centre, calling at Manchester Piccadilly, Oxford Road Train Station, and many other points of interest. Departures are every 10 minutes.
Shudehill Bus Station is just a short walk from the station.
Manchester Piccadilly is approximately one mile from Manchester Victoria. It’s a pleasant walk through the city centre but it’s possible to catch a Metrolink tram there if time is of the essence.
