Official tours of the Manchester Canals. Next up, Sat 20 April, 11am, from the Malmaison

Come with official Manchester canal guide Ed Glinert on an eye-opening FREE tour of the city’s industrial waterways, the Rochdale Canal, the Bridgewater Canal and any others we can find.
Glinert, Manchester’s leading historian, author of the forthcoming first ever epic history of the city, “Manchester: The Biography”, will guide you along the towpath pointing out the great buildings, for instance the one where a remarkable event led to Newton Heath becoming Manchester United, and the abandoned structures with a watery zeal as we head from the Malmaison Hotel at 3 Piccadilly, itself built above the Rochdale Canal, through the Gay Village and on to Castlefield.
