Irlam Station House
Sitting proudly on the Manchester bound platform – Irlam Station House is a magnificent combination of exuberant Victorian style, architectural flair and traditional community pride.
Built in 1893 during the golden age of railways, this flamboyant red brick structure underwent extensive restoration work as part of the Irlam Station Transformation project. The building now combines original architectural features with the introduction of some great new modern facilities offering visitors a taste of the present and flavour of the past.
Inside this unique venue – the sumptuous period decor provides a relaxing and absorbing atmosphere across two floors. The Café Bistro serves freshly prepared food and drink in a stylish environment where you can wait for your train, access new toilet facilities, enjoy free wi-fi and gather with family, friends or colleagues in extraordinary meeting spaces.
Throughout the building there are fascinating artefacts, memorabilia and art illustrating Irlam and Cadishead’s impressive industrial heritage. Definitely worth more than just a brief encounter!
It is also a venue for social and family functions or business meetings that has no equal. Available for private hire or individual areas can be reserved for smaller intimate gatherings. Whether it’s a wedding, christening, or business meeting this unique venue can add a special touch to any event.
Complemented by a free parking for up to 60 cars, motorcycles and a cycle hub means more people can take low carbon transport options, while enhanced lighting, security and pedestrian footpaths ensure a safe green environment.
The surrounding areas offer playful yet peaceful green spaces for both people and wildlife, with the station garden and grassed areas, bordered with plants and shrubs, adding splashes of vivid colour throughout the year.
