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. Visitors may pay what they think it is worth at the end of the tour. There is never a pressure to tip.

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:
Hello! My name's Josh. I'm from Manchester, went to the University of Manchester and I founded Free Manchester Walking Tours. I love this fantastic city and take pride in sharing it's unique story with visitors and Mancunians alike. As well as a tour guide, I am a playwright, having recently been awarded a commendation by the Bruntwood Prize for playwriting. I've invited a fantastic team of like-minded professional storytellers to join the team, all of whom are passionate about this city and what it has to offer.
