Smiths-Morrissey coach tour: All the Manchester area sites & stories

You’ve heard the records, lived the life, sang along to the songs, given up meat, cut your hair like Johnny Marr, bought an Andy Rourke-styled suede jacket, raised your eyes at Moz’s recent statements…now visit the sites where Mozzish music history was made by coach and foot.

  • The house where the Smiths were born in Firswood
  • The Ritz, where the Smiths made their debut.
  • The Lesser Free Trade Hall where the Sex Pistols caused a revolution, as watched by a teenage Morrissey and captured by him in print.
  • The Hacienda, vilified in “How Soon Is Now?”
  • The rented room in Whalley Range
  • Morrissey’s “iron bridge”
  • Morrissey’s “midweek on the playing fields”
  • Cemetery Gates
  • Church of the Holy Name
  • Salford Lads’ Club


And many more...

Here’s a great review:

Hi Ed,
Just thought id drop you a message to say me and my dad really enjoyed Sundays bus tour. We learnt lots of interesting info about the Manchester's music scene. We had a great day out together and thanks again!

See you soon on another tour maybe in the future. Think we may do a walking tour next time.
Take care,
Natalie.
