Opened in 1838, Salford Central Station was originally called Salford Station; however, this created much confusion with the much smaller Salford Crescent Station, and thus, the name was changed. Just a few short years after its conception, the pillars holding the roof had to be replaced. Due to sulphur from the old trains that passed through here when Salford was enjoying its industrial heyday thanks to the silk and cotton factories, the iron pillars rapidly corroded creating a dangerous situation.
The station has recently undergone a large redevelopment programme, including the installation of ramps and lifts, making it accessible to all. Around 700,000 passengers use the station annually, and this number is set to increase as Salford is developing into a hub for contemporary entertainment and culture.
The journey takes approximately 30 minutes by train from Salford to Manchester Airport.
It takes approximately 50 minutes to walk from the Salford Central Station into Salford via Liverpool Street; however, there are regular shuttle buses running this route.
No, there is no available parking at the Salford Central Station but the NCP Bridge Street Car Park is nearest to the station which is approximately 300 yards away.
No, but Salford Central Cycle Hub is a 1-minute walk away via New Bailey Street.
