WE DON’T JUST DO WALKS!

We don’t just do walks! We do tours, talks, cruises, PR…

For instance on Sunday 17 June India played Pakistan at the Cricket World Cup, a wonderful event which brought so many people to Manchester. New Manchester Walks’s Ed Glinert took a lovely party of Indian visitors on a coach tour of Manchester on the Saturday, the day before the match, together with Joan Davies of Manchester Guided Tours.

On the Monday Ed Glinert chaperoned another group of lovely Indian visitors on an all-day tour: a visit to Manchester United’s museum and stadium tour, a coach tour of the area, and a boat trip with historical commentary on the Princess Katharine boat. So, don’t forget to book our guides for something similar.

SECRETS OF THE MIDLAND HOTEL – NEW TOUR, NEW INFO

* Here’s a tip. Don’t waste your time booking onto a tour of the Midland Hotel where the guide tells you Rolls & Royce met within. They didn’t!
* How do we know? Ed Glinert of New Manchester Walks is one of the best researchers in the country, the author/journalist/tour guide who, yes, cracked the Jack the Ripper mystery (East End Chronicles, Penguin, 2005), and he’s come up with some startling information.
* It wasn’t difficult, but nobody else ever bothered.
* Transport groups and historical societies have not been able to prove him wrong.
* The hotel isn’t happy but we want them to promote accurate history!

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.
