Join us to celebrate the opening of our newest Landmark, the Station Agent’s House.
About this Event

In 1828, the building and the surrounding site was identified by the Liverpool & Manchester Railway (under the initial supervision of Engineer George Stephenson) as being well placed for what would be Liverpool Road Station. The house became the dwelling of the first Station Agent, Joseph Green and his family. The Station Agent’s House was the hub around which Liverpool Road Station was developed. Here, so much that would characterise train travel was first seen: waiting rooms, signals, tickets, ticket offices, and the station agent’s (later master's) house.

Come and explore this grand Victorian home, now wonderfully restored for future generations and families to enjoy as a hub for exploration of Manchester and the surrounding area.

We will be sharing information about the history of the building, and a Children’s Explorer activity booklet will be available. All are welcome.

Whilst booking is not essential we would ask that you register for the event via Eventbrite so that we can provide you with updates regarding the event and manage capacities. Priority will be given to those who have pre-registered.

The main entrance for the event will be the front door on Liverpool Road, near the junction with Water Street. Due to the capacity of the building we will be running timed admission slots throughout the day. Please therefore book your preferred admission time, and arrive within your time slot to be sure of entry. Please note, on the day if we are at capacity you may be asked to wait a short period, we thank you for your patience in this situation.

The Station Agent’s House has been designed to be as accessible as possible, a lift is available providing access to all floors. If you require lift access, please let us know via the registration on Eventbrite. One the day lift access is via the rear of the building, so please alert staff at the front entrance on arrival who will be happy to direct you. We do all we can to enable access wherever possible; for further information or if you have any access concerns that you’d like to discuss before visiting, please contact our Booking Enquiries team on 01628 825925 or [email protected]. The Booking Office is open Mon to Fri - 9am to 5pm.

There is no parking available on site. The building is located in the centre of Manchester, in the Castlefield area, so we encourage visitors to use Manchester’s excellent public transport to travel to the event. If you need to drive the nearest public pay and display car park is on Water Street. For blue badge holders there are a couple of public use disabled parking bays on the street outside the building on Water Street.

As a charity, the Landmark Trust relies on donations to support our work. We couldn’t have rescued over 200 Landmarks without the support of people like you. Your support saves historic buildings in danger of being lost forever and makes them available for all to experience and enjoy. Your donation could help train the craftspeople needed to restore buildings like this, or it could offer opportunities to young people to experience history first-hand, through our open days and free stays for study groups. We would be delighted if you felt able to add a gift to your booking today. We can’t wait to stay in touch and show you the difference your support has made. Thank you!
