We can show you all the urban sights of Manchester – the Quays, Sportcity, the grand buildings of Manchester, Old Trafford, the University, Gorton Monastery – or head off to Saddleworth Moor, Liverpool or the Peak District.
And here are further details:
Manchester was the Northern Powerhouse long before the political marketing men thought of the concept.
For here the factory system was created, Britain’s first canal was cut through, the world’s first passenger railway line opened, the greatest of all luxury cars was invented, the first computer was invented and graphene, the thinnest of all materials, devised.
This hi-tech coach tour takes you around the sights and sites of the Northern Powerhouse old and new: that first ever railway station; the site where the computer was first programmed; the home of Graphene; the new wonder material, invented in Manchester; Johnson & Nephew wire works where the original cable over the Niagara falls was put together; the Bradford (Manchester) super pit; the Newton Heath site where Blackpool Tower was built.
The work never ends. Power to the people!
The county of charm and character – verdant vertiginous Alderley Edge, space-age Jodrell Bank, the outrageous architecture of Knutsford, picturesque Peover villages, Tabley House…
More reliable than Steve’s cab, sharper than a withering glance from Eva, the Coronation Street coach tour takes you to the very Weatherfield streets that inspired the programme, to Richard Hillman’s watery grave, the church of St Mary’s and Weatherfield Registry Office where so many weddings have been messed up, the Red Rec and the two ITV studios, old and new. We have been running this tour in conjunction with Travel Solutions of Belfast, Hanson Travel and Bluebird of Weymouth for groups visiting the old Granada set.
The Glories of Manchester
A panoramic tour across the city past the most important sights, the most interesting history and the most beautiful buildings: Manchester Town Hall, Salford Quays, MediaCity, Manchester United, Gorton Monastery, cotton palaces, the world’s first railway station, Manchester City, John Rylands Library and the Fairfield Moravian Settlement.
Homes of Football
Here in the home of football we head round the back early doors to unearth Manchester United’s original pitches, Manchester City’s old grounds, Matt Busby’s house and George Best’s digs and pad. It’s a coach tour of two halves, where away history goals count double and plenty of photo-scoring opportunities at Old Trafford and the Etihad.
Liver-ly, Luvver-ly Liverpool
World Heritage Waterfront, Albert Dock, Anfield, Penny Lane, Strawberry Field, two Cathedrals…
Sport, Stars & Stadiums

Yorkshire of Yore
Handsome stone-hewn hot-spots in the hills of HebdenBridge, Heptonstall, Howarth and Holmfirth. Oh, and Bronte Country; wild, windy and wuthering. Last of the summer wine? First of the summer tours!
