Occasional city walking tours looking at the alternative side of Manchester. I am not a blue badge holder so the tours are informal but informative, and the only northern tours to feature in Telegraph Travel's Incredible Street Art Tours. Alternative and independent walking tours of Manchester since 2012.


the modern history of the northern quarter

Our most popular and frequent tour. A two hour look at the city's vibrant Northern Quarter, tracing its recent art and social history from the 1970s to present day. Expect a journey into gentrification, public space, and social justice told through ceramic art and murals.


art in architecture

Looking for noteworthy sculptures and murals in unexpected public buildings around Manchester. A city of hidden art galleries.


pomona island

Suspended between the canal and the River Irwell is an island bountiful with flora and fauna, and the legacy of industrial ruins. Hear its fascinating history, explore its nefarious underbelly, and uncover the stories buried, quite literally, beneath our feet on this concrete island.


The invisible boundary

Meandering along either side of the city's hidden waterway - the River Irwell. Explore the cultural uprising amongst the burned out pubs of Salford's Chapel Street, the Irwell Sculpture Trail, and the backside of Manchester and its alleyways.
