Event description

Description

* Manchester...we have been responsible for some of the most spectacular inventions: the canals, the railways, full-time competitive football, Rolls Royce, atomic power, the computer, graphene.
* Manchester...we have the greatest music: the Smiths, Joy Division, Oasis's "Slide Away", Happy Mondays' "Bob's Yer Uncle".
* Manchester...we have the greatest writers: Thomas de Quincey, Friedrich Engels, Anthony Burgess.
* Manchester...we have had the best footballers: Best, Law, Charlton; Bell, Lee and Summerbee.
* And here at new Manchester Walks we have the most interesting and entertaining guided tours.

Don't waste your time on a so-called free tour (which isn't really free anyway) taken by an unqualified, untrained, unofficial guide who knows little of the city's history and has made no attempt to become an official guide, or on an open-top bus tour with bland recorded commentary.

This tour is led by proper professional trained guides accountable to the tourist board and council who know the city intimately and have researched it for decades to uncover the best stories.

New to the city or just looking to be refreshed at parts you have reached before? Our Manchester Highlights tour is the ideal walk, a taster, a teaser, a trip through town on a timeless tourist trail. It’s a best of everything, taking in the old and the new, the ancient and the artful, the glamorous and the glorious. It’s the perfect welcome or welcome back to the 21st century city.

ON THE TOUR WE GO TO:

• Chinatown.
• The Art Gallery.
• Central Library, inspired by Rome’s St Peter’s Basilica and Pantheon.
• Where Rolls met Royce to launch the world’s most famous luxury cars.
• Manchester’s greatest building, now a 5-star hotel.
• A hidden gem of a church to see the miraculous Stations of the Cross paintings.
• The Town Hall in all its Gothic glory.
• ... and much more.

Manchester Highlights finishes at the Town Hall Sculpture Hall café.

For all our other tours – Manchester Town Hall tour, the Pankhursts, Exploring the old docks, Engels & Marx in Manchester, John Rylands Library, Cathedral & Chetham’s, Peterloo, the Historic Canal Cruise, a selection of pub walks and a hundred others – see:
