Live departures and arrivals

Any football fanatic can tell you that Manchester is the hometown of two of the leading football teams in the world, but it has so much more to offer. Proud of its past and its role in the Industrial Revolution, today’s Manchester is vibrantly cosmopolitan and rich in diversity.

For interactive family fun, head for the Science and Industry Museum, and experience the hands-on adventure. Exploring how science can change the world we live in, the collections and displays explain everything from medicine to aircraft, there’s something to interest everyone. The Manchester Museum is home to vast galleries displaying over four million objects. From dinosaurs to Ancient Egyptian mummies, from the dawn of time stretching into the future, these collections from around the globe offer a fascinating look into the wonders of the world.

If you’re after retail therapy to die for, Manchester has two great shopping centres - the Arndale and Intu Trafford. With all the big high street names under their roofs, many designers base their flagship stores here, recognising Manchester’s importance in the commercial sector. However, once away from the bright lights, the shopping becomes even more exclusive. Independent boutiques showcase locally produced crafts, such as hand-thrown pottery, and mouth-blown art glass. Artisanal delicacies, including homemade cakes, deliciously sweet fudge and wonderful bread make delightful treats to take home to Crewe.

Continuing the foodie theme, the Corn Exchange tempts diners from all over the UK. Housing numerous cafes and restaurants, this glorious Edwardian building is ideally situated for grabbing a snack before a show, relaxing after a day exploring or going all out for the fine dining experience. Offering a fusion of global flavours, there truly is something to suit every palate.

So whether you’re visiting Manchester on business or pleasure, catching the train from Crewe is the most relaxing way to travel. Enjoy our free Wi-Fi on the way home, and start planning your next adventure.
