From London (including Eurostar terminal) to Manchester by rail

The London rail terminus serving Manchester is Euston. There are three trains per hour to Manchester Piccadilly. The journey time is usually approximately 2 hours 10 minutes, but may be longer at weekends or late at night. All services are operated by Virgin Trains. For more information about rail travel in the UK, see this page.

Euston is easy to reach from other parts of London by Underground. It is served by two Underground stations: Euston, on the Northern and Victoria Lines, and Euston Square, on the Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan and Circle Lines (see map). Euston Underground station connects directly to the rail station concourse; Euston Square is a short walk along Euston Road.

From the Eurostar

Eurostar (Channel Tunnel rail link) services from Paris and Brussels terminate at St Pancras International rail station. St Pancras is conveniently located on Euston Road, 600m from Euston Station. The walk between the two is well signposted and should take 5 to 10 minutes.

Note that although the two stations are connected by a direct Underground link, this is unlikely to save any time, and will not be helpful if you are infirm or have heavy bags to deal with. A taxi is the only easier alternative.
