Iconic History

The building itself is particularly striking, and the architecture tells a story about Manchester Central’s history. For almost a century, Manchester Central was one of the city’s busiest railway stations, with up to 400 trains passing through a day.

The station was closed as it was no longer needed alongside the expansion of Piccadilly Station, and in 1986 the G-Mex Centre was opened by Queen Elizabeth II. The G-Mex Centre quickly became a popular venue for concerts and exhibitions.

To deal with increasing demand Manchester International Convention Centre (MICC) was built, adding an auditorium and break out rooms to the venue. Later, in 2007, the G-Mex Centre and MICC were renamed Manchester Central to pay homage to the former station. The iconic arches and station clock have been a staple of the venue and the city for over 130 years.
