The station is looking good following a large investment in a large scale refurbishing. Decent coffee served in a couple of venues.

This is the first building in the United Kingdom to have been named after a person, that person being Queen Victoria. A beautiful piece of history with plenty of places to enjoy a quick cup of coffee or tea.

Manchester's Victoria Station is a typical busy English railway station, bustling and not particularly inspirational. It is more functional than aesthetic.

Only used this station due to no direct train to Manchester airport. On a Sunday there were only a few shops, cafes open and not alot to choose from compared to Piccadilly. It is also a very cold station but very close to the center.
