We were informed that you could get a tram from Victoria Station to Manchester City football ground. We checked it out the night before to see what we had to do and where to catch the tram. It was a very easy journey as the station was a few minutes walk away from our hotel. We went to the tram... More

Last time I drunk here was some time ago. I have to say the bar is a vast improvement being warm and cleaner. This is a vast improvement although it still need a bit of warming to the atmosphere and appearance, it is now a reasonably pleasant place to drink

The Victorian Victoria station is now open for business again after major renovations, looks good now whilst still retaining many of the original features.

I normally go Piccadilly for access to Manchester by train. On this trip we went into Victoria. Ages (like 20years!) since I have been there. That end of Manchester is transformed and it is a very short walk to the Arndale centre, the Royal Exchange and St Anne's square, and then Kings Street. Give it a try if you are... More

Victoria Station is well known for its dimly lit 1960s concrete roofed platforms. This is a fact. They are just awful. Look what else this station offers. This huge Victorian station building has been modernised. All the original features have been saved and this enormous roof has been built over the concourse. What was a wet and windy gravel car...

We always use Victoria station when we go to Manchester. It is not far from the shops. It's always clean and you can have a drink or something to eat while waiting for train or tram.

Unbelievably bad,The smell is horrific, I bet you wouldn't get this situation at Manchester Piccadilly Station where the trains run to 'Landan' and the likes. North south divide is alive and kicking in Manchester! Time and time again over the past several months it's the same, complain as much... More

Got off train here for night out in Manchester. Walking distance to shops and bars, however taxi rank outside with lots of taxis. Ideal for Print-works, Arndale, Selfridges and shops near there.

There were places to eat and drink and the whole area was clean. Good signage and plenty of staff on hand to guide you and help with platforms etc.
