Event description

Description

The Roman birthplace of Manchester also doubles as the industrial birthplace of the city in the 18th century.

But this is also one of the most important historical sites in the world, as it is the home of the world’s oldest railway station and Britain’s first canal.

The lesser known history is also eye-opening. Here can be found Manchester’s last authentic Roman relic (below), a hut from where people could emigrate to America, stupendous railway viaducts, secluded waterways, quaint cobbles, the most sprawling of museums and a graveyard full of surprises. We will also summon up the spirit of Betty’s hot pot at the site of the Rovers Return.
