Avanti West Coast

Avanti operate most of the trains on the West Coast Mainline from London Euston Station to the West Midlands, to Manchester and Liverpool in the North-West and onwards to Carlisle and Glasgow.

Stockport Station on the West Coast Mainline is on the route taken by trains to Buxton from Manchester Piccadilly so it makes a great interchange point for Disley, New Mills, Whaley Bridge and Buxton if you are heading to that part of the Peak District from the south.

At Manchester Piccadilly connections can be made into the all stations stopping trains operated by Northern Trains on the Hope Valley, Buxton and Glossop lines to get you out into a large part of the Peak District National Park.

Avanti operate a fleet of impressive Pendolino express trains on the West Coast Mainline which are comfortable and well-equipped for long-distance journeys. The typical journey time between London and Manchester is 2hrs 6mins.
