If you want to get the most of your stay in this most historic of cities, a guided walk may be your best bet. There are hundreds of walking tours on offer (all with qualified Blue and Green Badge Guides), who know the city better than the backs of their own hands. And the thing about Manchester is that you really have no idea what lies behind its innocuous-looking doors, shopfronts and buildings until someone tells you – and when they do, you’ll begin to understand the depth and complexity of a city that has inspired the world for hundreds of years. To get you started, here are some of our recommended Manchester walks.
