Manchester Victoria provides services northwards to towns in Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire, and to Liverpool. It’s a vital station for the region, with 8.25 million rail passengers travelling through it last year.

The opening of the Orsdall Chord railway bridge has improved connectivity between Victoria, Piccadilly and Oxford Road stations, resulting in more frequent trains to Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle and Hull. Linked by the Chord, passengers travelling to Piccadilly Station from South Manchester, Cheshire, Staffordshire, North East England, London and other major destinations can now easily plan journeys via Victoria.
