A rollicking, ridiculous, entertaining and informative tour through Manchester's pubs

About this event

THE funniest pub tours in the country, absurd yet factual roller-coasters staggering across three hundred years of Manchester's drinking history. At the conclusion there’s a daft, very short, pub quiz based on the guide’s commentary with ‘great’ prizes. This is a laughing, learning and slurping exercise in getting to know Manchester (and the UK for that matter) through one of its most cherished institutions. The tour visits classic pubs in the city centre and explains the origin of ‘cheers’, the reason behind pub names, the curious sports and games associated with pubs both past and present, the music pubs have hosted and some of the strange clubs that have occupied them. As one guest said: "A wonderful romp through pub history, truly entertaining and informative. My favourite way to enjoy Manchester."

The ticket price is for the tour and commentary. Guests will have to pay for their own drinks in the pubs. Tours will only take place if the various bookings add up to a minimum of six guests. Refunds and transfers. Tours can be transferred to other dates if guests can't make the ticketed date but refunds can only be offered if the tour is cancelled by the operator or the operator is given 48 hours notice.
