United on the cool front

Manchester, the typical English town

Gritty but glamorous, Manchester has a re-emerging bar and club scene, a well-documented musical heritage and a happy clash of Victorian and 21st-century architecture.

About United Kingdom

During the industrial revolution, Manchester developed an important textile industry: you can still see numerous old cotton factories outside the town centre. The magnificent carved stalls inside the gothic cathedral of Manchester are worth a detour.

Admire the most important public edifice in England from the Victorian period: the City Hall in neo-gothic style, situated on Albert Square. You will also be amazed by the extraordinary skyscrapers from the 1960’s and 1970’s. Manchester offers a lot of fascinating museums and art galleries. The Manchester Art Gallery invites you to discover an interesting collection of artworks from European artists and the largest Pre-Raphaelite collection of the United-Kingdom.

Don’t miss the world-famous gay village with its lively pubs and its gay supermarket, the first one opened in the United-Kingdom.

    Tons of luggage but no space | Azlinah m. | 2014/08/10
    "I had my very first experience with RAILeurope. It was easy to navigate at the train station with luggage and easy instruction by the information counter officer. However, had a lot of difficulty to carry out big luggage up to the train. We bought this big luggage because we were heading to london then to paris before we head home to Singapore. Lucky thing, we had a 63year old man in our tour group to help us load those luggage. And the best part was, the train manager in the coach was kind enough to give us the space to put our luggage at the side of their bar. Overall, it was satisfying experience, thank you train manager and RAILeurope. "

    "The 9.34am from Zurich on a Friday was crowded but comfortable. Travelling at up to 199MPH, and punctual, it enabled us to travel from Zurich to Manchester in one day. Pretty good. We had come from Budapest to Vienna and Vienna to Zurich via the Arlberg pass earlier in the week with a full day in both Vienna and Zurich. Good hotels near the main stations. A great journey home by rail! Only East Coast let us down! "
