A major transport hub, Manchester has some of the busiest railway stations in the UK. Manchester Piccadilly is the main central station, serving routes to London Euston, Birmingham New Street, South Wales, the North and South of England, Edinburgh and Glasgow Central. Other stations include Manchester Victoria, which largely serves routes to the North and East of England.

It serves commuter routes into and out of the city centre, with stops including Beetham Tower (the Hilton Deansgate) and Piccadilly Gardens for the Northern Quarter and main retail district.


Manchester has two main ring roads. The M60 runs within the Greater Manchester region, providing good inter-suburban transport links, while the A57/A57 (M), popularly known as Mancunian Way, runs from the centre to the south of the city. Other main motorways include the M56 for Birmingham and the M62 for Liverpool.


The Manchester Ship Canal is the only purpose built ship canal in the UK, and today it’s also used for leisure trips past MediaCityUK and Spinningfields.
