    The mosaic signage is beautiful. Also, everyone I spoke to was friendly. In the shops and at the gates. Happy and friendly people.

    Much better now that the redevelopment has taken shape. Bright and airy.

    The renovations are a huge improvement. Now has modern facilities, wide open platforms, retaining Victorian architecture but with a modern twist.

    Don't buy coffee from the Metro bar. Go to Java instead.

    Go upstairs for an arena. Or a Mcdonald's. Or use the train to get to an exciting destination such as Salford Crescent or Stalyvegas.

    Heading to Wigan Wallgate? You can get in Southport train and get off in Wigan! Sometimes it's faster!

    Avoid the ticket men on platform 4 & 5. Go through the MEN arena

    Miserable place but at least if you have to change trains and you have a break between them you can explore Manchester.

    Vaulting over the ticket barriers can sometimes upset the ticket inspectors.

    Amazing architecture out front and in the bar but it really needs sons money throwing at it.

    The nicest thing about this train station is the bar.

    You can't pick up pre-booked thickets from here! You'll need to get them from a machine at another station!

    Trains seem to leave a few minutes early so don't rely on 'just in time'

    Misery personified. Use Piccadilly or the tram if you can.

    Catch the Metroshuttle bus number 2 from outside the station for free travel around the city centre.
