At a Glance: Walks A-Z

Scroll down! Scroll down!
What a useful feature! No more scrabbling around the leaflet desperately trying to find when the Charles Dickens’ Manchester walk or the Old Docks tour is taking place (and then only finding out the day after).

Now you can see at a glance what’s on and when.

Please note
This feature is not a complete guide to all our tours: just the most popular ones so that customers can see at a glance when they’re on.

* For details of what time the tours start and where to meet, please go to the Calendar.
