San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
This walking tour looks at Manchester's legendary music history from the 1960's onwards. Starting with the Beat scene, via Punk and Madchester up to the present day. Joy Division, The Smiths, New Order, Happy Mondays, Factory records, Oasis, Elbow... they're all covered. Oh, and Take That get a mention too (wouldn't be fair to leave them out).
The tour includes a visit to the site of the infamous Haçienda club.
When & Where
Tour Manchester is led by Sue McCarthy, one of Manchester's official Tourist Guides.
If you are new to Manchester, a walking tour is a great way to learn a lot about the city in a little bit of time.
And if you are a local, you will almost certainly find out about things that you never even noticed before.
Tours are not just informative (this is not a history lesson after all), they are also interesting and entertaining.
