Recent renovations have transformed parts of Manchester Victoria station, as part of a wide-ranging development plan that will see it become a key east-west interchange in northern England. Fans of railway history can still find plenty to admire, including the neo-Baroque Edwardian facade, which carries the name of the original Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, and the iron and glass canopy with the names of the original destinations served by the station. Inside you can see a tiled map of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, which stretched from Liverpool in the west to Hull in the east. Manchester Victoria is attached to the neighbouring Manchester Arena, and just outside the main entrance stands the National Football Museum. The area to the south-east of the station is known as the Northern Quarter, a popular districts of bars and cafés, music shops and the legendary Affleck’s Palace, which has been dressing youth from Manchester and beyond since the early 1980s.
