Event description
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.

If you like this tour you may also like the Manchester Music Walkabout (1pm every Saturday) and the Manchester Ghost Walkabout (5pm every Saturday).
