Dating back to 1849, Altrincham station is on the Mid-Cheshire Line, with regular services to Manchester Piccadilly via Stockport and Chester. Despite many changes over the years, its Victorian clock tower still looms over Stamford New Road, offering a reminder of the station's long history. Today it's a busy interchange, with some of its former train platforms used as a terminus for the Altrincham line of Manchester's Metrolink tram service, and a bus station just outside. Altrincham itself is a market town that grew into an affluent suburb as the railway attracted Manchester's commuters to the area. Today the heart of the town is on the streets to the west of the station, including the pedestrianised George Street and the parallel Market Street. Look out for picturesque timber-framed buildings on Old Market Place, a short walk west of the station, and the elegant old Town Hall on Market Street.

Station details & facilities

Altrincham's main entrance is opposite the bus station on Stamford New Road. The concourse has ticket counters and ticket machines, and leads directly onto platform 1 (Metrolink tram services). An additional side entrance leads directly to the platform. Platforms 2 to 4 can be reached via a footbridge, with barrow crossings for step-free access - note that these should only be used with assistance. Rail services depart from platform 3 (towards Manchester) and platform 4 (towards Chester).
