Manchester Victoria is an old station that has done well to make every platform accessible for wheelchair users, people with mobility impairments, parents with pushchairs and people with large luggage.


Platforms 1, 2 and 3 are on level access from the main concourse. Platforms 4 to 6 are accessed via 3 bridges that cross the railway lines.  The middle bridge has lifts which take passengers to and from these platforms.

Ticket Office

Due to the historic and listed status of the station the ticket office remains as originally built.  It is therefore not suitable for all passengers. The original counters are high and there are rails very close to the counter. It does provide induction loops and chip and pin machines.

For customers who are unable to use this counter there are 2 ticket machines opposite. Passengers who are unsure or unable to use these services or those who require assistance with their journey should contact the station in advance of travelling on:
