Event description

Description

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 tell the story of Manchester.

Free Manchester Walking Tours is an independent tour established by Josh. These tours are run on a tips-only basis. I believe everyone should be able to discover Manchester, no matter what their budget. I receive no financial subsidy or support. I ask that visitors pay what they think it is worth at the end of the tour, relative to their budget.

WHEN:

Days: Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Start Time: 11am.

Length: 3 - 3.5 hours. (including 15-min break)

Please only attend if you intend to join for the whole duration.

WHERE:

Begin: Alan Turing Memorial, Sackville Gardens, opposite Chez Cafe near Canal Street. (Postcode M1 3BH)

End: Exchange Square, opposite Oyster Pub near the National Football Museum. (postcode M3 1BD)

ADDITIONAL INFO:

Ours tours run in ALL weather: an umbrella is recommended.

We always run on the days and times specified (including bank holidays) unless otherwise stated here. I will post any holiday cancellations on Twitter (@FreeTours_MCR) and on Facebook in advance.

Cancellations scheduled:
25th - 28th August 2017.

I'd be grateful if school groups and large parties (10+) could contact me in advance.

ACCESSIBILITY:

These tours are only in the English language. El tour es solo en inglés.

The tour is wheelchair accessible.

I always try my best to accommodate other needs (eg hearing/medical) just contact me beforehand, or let me know at the beginning of the tour.

Anyone of any age is welcome on the tour; our youngest guest so far has been 2 weeks old, and the oldest 89. Please note, there is a small reference to drug use, and I use one expletive!

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. 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).

ABOUT THE GUIDE:
My name is Josh and I graduated from the University of Manchester four years ago. I specialised in urban soundscapes, specifically within industrial and post-industrial Manchester. I am from Greater Manchester and I live in Hulme. I otherwise work freelance as a writer in theatre. I started these tours because I wanted to share how there is so much more to Manchester than people expect.
