October is upon us, and as the days get darker our tours and activities guide is here to help you find something new to try your hand at. This month we’re highlighting some of the spookiest, silent disco-based and sippable things to do in Manchester.
The wildly popular Silent Adventures is landing in Manchester this October. After their success in Edinburgh, and across five other UK cities, their pop-fueled dancing tours saunter our way thus autumn, and trust us, you’ll know when you see them. For an alternative kind of party tour, try Manchester Gay Tours, the most recent tour from Sí Manchester – a company whose day-to-day tours are already well established and hugely popular.
For something a bit more refined, why not try Gin tasting and Afternoon Tea with the Northern Wine School? Make the most of having some expert knowledge as you sip away the afternoon in pure decadence.
With it being October, how could we not include the most popular Ghost Walks in Manchester and Stockport? Flecky Bennet will once again be touring the streets, sharing stories of ghosts, beasts and murder with anyone brave enough to listen. If you are looking for something a bit lighter, have a laugh at Salford Museum instead. In their Cultural Comedy tours, comedians take you through the A-Z exhibition, sharing a lighthearted personal spin on the art and civic heritage within.
