This is the principal railway station in Manchester, England. Opened as Store Street in 1842 and renamed Manchester London Road in 1847, it serves intercity routes to London Euston, Birmingham New Street, Bristol, South Wales, the south coast of England, Edinburgh and Glasgow Central, Leeds, Liverpool Lime Street, Sheffield, Newcastle and other routes throughout northern England. Two platforms for the Metrolink light rail network are located in the station’s undercroft. Piccadilly is one of 17 British railway stations managed by Network Rail.

Piccadilly is the busiest station in the Manchester station group ahead of Oxford Road, Victoria and Deansgate. With over 18.6 million passenger entries and exits between April 2011 and March 2012, it is the sixth busiest station in the United Kingdom outside London, after Birmingham New Street, Glasgow Central, Leeds, Edinburgh Waverley and Glasgow Queen Street. It is the second busiest interchange station outside London, with almost 3.8 million passengers changing trains at the station annually

The station received a five-year £100m refurbishment in 2002, which was the most expensive improvement on the UK rail network at the time. There are plans to enlarge the station with two new through platforms as part of the Northern Hub and five new platforms as part of the High Speed 2 proposals.
