SECRETS OF THE MIDLAND HOTEL – NEW TOUR, NEW INFO

* This is the only properly-researched Midland Hotel tour. We’ve tried to spread the word, but hey…
* It is based on original research carried out by the author/journalist/tour guide who, yes, cracked the Jack the Ripper mystery (East End Chronicles, Penguin, 2005).
* No handed down stories that were never checked in the first place.
* We won’t tell you Rolls met Royce at the Midland because…they didn’t!

How To Come On One Of Our Tours

Please book on eventbrite if possible. This is because a number of tours get heavily booked and we need to know how many guides to put on.

However if you can’t do that, because you
* Don’t trust t’Internet
* Don’t have a computer
* The dog ate your credit card

then just come along and pay cash on the day. But please check on the morning of the walk to ensure there are places and it is still taking place.
Just ring 07769 29 8068 and leave a message.

TOURISTS, VISITORS, LOCALS – AVOID THE RIP-OFF FREE TOURS! BOOK ON A PROPER TOUR

Here’s a tip from one who knows. Avoid the free tours. They’re a rip-off. Yes, you don’t have to stump any cash – and who carries much money around with them anyway these days? – but you’ll be wasting your time and your intelligence will be insulted if you make the mistake of going on them.

If you’d like to discover a general broad-brush history of Manchester there’s a “Discover Manchester” tour going on every day at 11am from Central Library, hosted by our colleagues from Manchester Guided Tours.
