The Eurostar goes to St. Pancras International station in London. The Virgin Trains Pendolino service has a train to Manchester every 20 minutes, and takes about two hours. This leaves from Euston station, which is about ten minutes walk from St. Pancras. The public transport connections between the two stations are not very good, so I would generally ...

The Eurostar arrives at London Kings Cross/St. Pancras. From there you can catch the midland main line (to Sheffield) or the east coast main line (to Newcastle and Edinburgh). If you wanted to go to Manchester you'd need to take the West coast main line from Euston (a 9 minute tube ride away). As long as you don't mind changing trains, the Eurostar is a ...

Manchester Airport really don't want people using cars at all for pick-up/drop-off; they charge taxis a lot of money to access the station, and they want to direct all private-hire to their "official partner" of Arrow Cars (who are really expensive relative to other private-hire or Uber, but cheaper than hailing a taxi). They've also tried repeatedly to make ...

The Normal Procedure You can buy Manchester United tickets on eticketing and the derby game here particularly. You can buy Manchester City tickets direct from the Manchester city site, however MC have not yet started sale for next seasons matches (dates are yet to be confirmed). Why that probably won't work Note that the derby (MUFC vs MCFC) is a big ...

There's a railway station at Old Trafford itself, handily called "Manchester United Foodball Ground". Looking at the Official directions and map it looks to be right by the stadium, and Wikipedia concurs. The Manchester Sport Website suggests that trains to Old Trafford depart from Manchester Picaddilly, so that should make things easy. However, Wikipedia ...

Is it possible to make a day trip from around 10-11am from Manchester to Sheffield and return to Manchester (hotel near the airport by 11pm or 12am? Manchester to sheffield and back on a day by train is easilly doable. Heck I know someone who does it as a daily commute. Most of the time there are two fast trains per hour between Manchester Picadilly and ...

Traveling after 9:30, you can mostly use a super saver ticket, which is cheaper than a ticket that allows travel any time of the day, while still allowing you to use any train on that day. There is a railway station in the airport, so while it is a bit of a walk, you do not need other transport. I have entered your details into Traveline and found you can ...

Note on locations Note that the Metrolink stop named "Old Trafford" is for the Cricket Ground, not the Football Ground. For MUFC, you should get off the tram at Pomona, Exchange Quay, Old Trafford or, from 2020, Wharfside and walk from there. This question should be useful to you. Tram Frequency You can see Tram Frequencies for leaving Picadilly on this ...

The tram takes a long way around - it takes a bit of a tour through Manchester suburbs, and it's maximum speed is 50 mph (80km/h). If there was a direct service, then the extra convenience of not needing to change would probably make it a superior option. But there isn't a direct service - you need to change at Trafford Bar or Cornbrook. I would suggest ...

if I want to go to Manchester for example, should I also consider the Eurostar as an option? Trains to Manchester go from Euston which is a short walk from St Pancras. So let's see ~30m Eurostar checkin BS (less if you buy an expensive ticket) ~2h20m Paris to London ~20m walking between stations, finding platforms etc ~10m waiting for a train to ...

I checked the web site for Hainan and they say: To make your flight even more comfortable and convenient, we have carefully selected a series of items for you to use, including soft and comfortable blankets and fluffy waist pillows, allowing you to relax your entire body and enjoy a splendid journey. There is no mention of whether the blankets are shrink-...

If you are going to a match, there is a station called "Manchester United Football Ground" that you can get a direct train to - from Piccadilly, these trains leave from platform 14, which is not in the main station; you should use the bridge that is at the far end of the platforms from the station buildings to reach platform 14. Trains to this stop only run ...

According to Manchester's website: The other quickest way of getting to Old Trafford (especially for Sunday matches) is to grab a lift on the nearest tram/metrolink. Trams travel every 12 minutes every day of the week. And from Metrolink: The price for an adult return ticket is £3.20 and £1.20 for a child return ticket. One day travelcards and ...

This link might help you find your way around. I've never used the public transport in Manchester but I'm sure there will be a bus.

@pnuts comment answers this question, I guess: The Metrolink details are reliable. The service has only been running for two weeks and presumably other sites have yet to catch up with developments.

Uber have a set of airport pick up guides, but Manchester is not on the list so I infer they are not authorised to pick up there https://www.uber.com/en-GB/airports/#Europe I normally get a fixed price quote when I get a mini cab from an airport, but haven't tried this specifically at Manchester.

The question asked about Premier League tickets, but I think it's worth mentioning that Manchester City and Manchester United now both have teams in the FA Women's Super League, giving you another way of seeing a City-United derby (and undoubtedly some great football). City Women normally play in City's Academy stadium across the road from the main ground, ...

Manchester Airport's website isn't overly helpful in this respect, but if it's a single ticket then it looks like you can transfer airside and therefore, wouldn't require a transit visa If you have booked separately with two airlines (i.e. there is no transfer agreement in place and you do not have an onward boarding card) then you will need to reclaim ...

Assuming you're asking for directions, here's the map for the TFGM Tram system: https://tfgm.com/public-transport/tram/network-map If you have the time and want to only tram it, you'll want to take the tram from Old Trafford to Trafford Bar (Frequency every 12 minutes, journey time 2 mins) where you can then pick up the Manchester Airport line (Frequency ...

I have flown into Manchester many times. Sometimes it take forever to pass through immigration. From my experience it depends on what day of the week and time of the year. In summer, it will take longer for obvious reasons. Also, if you are not a EU citizen it will take longer to pass immigration. With regards to baggage collection, Manchester is pretty ...

They do not revoke transit visas on a whim. There needs to be a concrete reason like you obtained it fraudulently or you are using forged documents. The law says that a transit visa means the Home Office has already checked you out and you are cleared. From the rules... The holder of such an entry clearance will not require leave to enter on arrival ...

The metro link to the airport is newly opened (Monday 3rd November 2014) See official Metro Link site for details and map. So you will need to take a tram from the Airport to Trafford Bar and change for a tram for one stop to Old Trafford. Route Map.
