New to the city or just looking to be refreshed at parts you’ve reached before? This is the ideal walk, for this is Manchester; a taster, a teaser, a trip through town. It’s a best of everything, taking in the old and the new, the ancient and the artful.
Where do we go and what are we likely to see? Most of the following, depending on how quickly you walk!
The Peterloo Memorial
The Hidden Gem church.
The magnificently refurbished Central Library and why it looks like the Pantheon.
The towering Town Hall, one of the finest in Britain.
The Midland Hotel, where Rolls didn’t meet Royce.
The Free Trade Hall (pic, below), One of the country’s greatest buildings.
The awe-inspiring John Rylands Library.
The Royal Exchange, for decades the parliament of the cotton lords.
