Free Manchester Walking Tours are the most comprehensive and entertaining introduction to the city of Manchester (#1 Tour in Manchester, TripAdvisor). They are also a great way to meet new people. These tours aim to tell the story of Manchester.
These tours are run on a tips-only basis. Free Manchester Walking Tours is an independent tour established by Josh, last September. We believe everyone should be able to discover Manchester, no matter what their budget. We receive no financial subsidy or support. We ask that our visitors pay what they think it is worth at the end of the tour, relative to their budget.
The tours run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the winter months. They begin at 11am. They are three hours in length (finishing around 2pm). There is a 15-minute coffee stop included.
They begin in Sackville Gardens by the Alan Turing Memorial- opposite Chez Cafe. (postcode M1 3BH)
They usually end in Exchange Square, by the Oyster Pub. (postcode M3 1BD)
Ours tours run in ALL weather: an umbrella is recommended!

PLACES WE GO TO AND THINGS WE TALK ABOUT:
In our tours we talk about two different periods of Manchester's history: the industrial era, and the post-industrial 'Mad-chester' era. Through a number of interesting and funny anecdotes, we take in the big attractions (Town Hall, Royal Exchange and Free Trade Hall) as well as the lesser known quirks (Vimto Monument, Underground Manchester and Factory Records). Each tour is slightly different.
