Getting into Manchester by Train

Manchester was once the industrial capital of the world, but is more famous nowadays for football, television and nightlife. If you love sport, music, or history, it's a fine place to visit. If you are arriving from Liverpool the major entry point is Manchester Piccadilly Station, on the eastern outskirts of the city centre. To get to the centre you can take a Metrolink tram to St. Peter's Square, which should take around 20 minutes. Trams are also the best way to get to Old Trafford, and run until midnight every day.
