Stockport Station

The town of Stockport lies in Greater Manchester, and Stockport Station sits just a few minutes away from the banks of the River Mersey. Originally built in 1840, the station’s lines were electrified in 1955, although some lines remain without electric power to them. 

Trains offer direct routes from Stockport to several of the country’s largest industrial towns and cities. Direct lines run to towns including Liverpool, Manchester, Blackpool, Southport, Birmingham, Shrewsbury and Cardiff.

Stockport Station sits just down the road from Stockport College and is only a short walk away from Stockport’s bustling town centre, where modern amenities can easily be accessed, including numerous bars, restaurants and hotels. 

McDonald’s has a restaurant just a couple of minutes’ walk away, which is convenient for transiting passengers needing somewhere quick and easy to purchase food. There are also some food outlets in the station itself, including Starbucks Coffee, and a Sainsbury’s Local sits immediately across the road, allowing travellers to purchase any needed accessories or refreshments. An ATM is also available inside Sainsbury’s.

Grand Central Car Park and NCP Stockport Exchange allow plentiful parking, and taxis and buses can be easily accessed from outside the front of the station.
