This is an exciting and entertaining brand new tour devised by Manchester’s hardest-working tour guides, New Manchester Walks.

We will descend beneath the city streets on a scintillating subterranean sensationalist and serious new tour.

* First, a warning. Manchester could be under attack from an awful airborne enemy. Various city centre buildings have been targeted. We will reveal the hit list.

* A well-known building in the city centre has been chosen as the secret government emergency HQ, should the enemy invade Manchester. Only we know its identity.

* We will take refuge from the Blitz in the subterranean shelters. Secure? We hope so.

* And then some good news! A different invading army is arriving in Manchester. They are friendly. They will bring with them luxuries we haven’t seen here for years: oranges, chocolate, tipped cigarettes, silk stockings…yes, where would we be without silk stockings?

* If we win the war we can all dance for joy in Albert Square.

* With that war over, there will now be a new, bigger threat. Don’t want to alarm anybody but can we take refuge from imminent nuclear annihilation?

* Phew! Now you can go home into the safety of 21st century Manchester.

Our earlier Underground Manchester tour, remember, was England’s second most popular a few years ago. Only the London Jack the Ripper tour brought in more customers.

First batch of dates
* Sunday 4 August, 2.30pm & 3pm.
