Why take the train to Burnage?
Burnage station is one of two railway stations serving the South Manchester suburb of Burnage –once described by George Bernard Shaw as the prettiest village in Manchester.
Nowadays, Burnage is most famously known as the childhood home of Liam and Noel Gallagher. Oasis fans who take a train to Burnage will find Sifters Records (the record shop where the brothers used to buy their music and which gets a mention in their song ‘Shakermaker’) just a few seconds walk from the station.
As it’s close to Withington, Levenshulme, Heaton Chapel and Didsbury, Burnage train services are especially popular with commuters working in Manchester city centre.
