Manchester needs no introduction. The northern city is renowned for its music, nightlife and industrial history – and of course it's home to two of the world's best football clubs in Manchester United and Manchester City. Manchester Piccadilly, a popular station for both commuters and national travellers and a major transport hub for the north, takes you to the thick of the action. The free Metroshuttle bus service is the perfect way to reach landmarks such as the Museum of Science & Industry, Salford Quays and the Lowry cultural centre. The principal railway station in Manchester dates back to 1842, but in 2002 the station underwent a five-year, £100m refurbishment, which was much needed to cope with the 23 million passengers travelling through the station each year. A 2007 poll recorded Manchester Piccadilly as having the highest customer satisfaction level of any train station in the UK, so as you pace the concourse, expect a lot of smiles.
