Unravel the mysteries of the western side of the city centre on this eye-opener of a tour through the Roman birthplace of Manchester which later became the industrial birthplace of the city in the 18th century and has recently been the home of the world’s most famous television programme.

Castlefield is packed with history around every corner: the country’s first canal; a weigh-house from which people could emigrate to America; stupendous railway viaducts; secluded waterways; quaint cobbles; the most sprawling of museums; a graveyard full of surprises and that street!

It’s the birthplace of industry and the birthplace of Manchester.
