Manchester Piccadilly

Manchester’s principal station

Manchester Piccadilly was at the heart of the industrial revolution when the railway came to the city in 1830. The potential to link the city with other industrial towns and cities made Manchester an important centre for railway investment, and its role as a hub continues to this day.

The busiest of five stations in Manchester, with 14 platforms, Piccadilly opened in 1842. Passenger satisfaction levels are at 92 per cent as opposed to the 60 per cent national average, and 24.5 million passengers pass through the station annual.
