Forget that trip to Bath, Brighton or Barcelona when you can follow Ed Glinert, one of Manchester’s leading historians and most published authors, around the streets of Manchester and marvel at the exquisite Italianate features of Chepstow House and George Meek’s Castlefield Library; the perfect symmetrical beauty of the Classical styled Friends Meeting House; and the Venetian effects and embellishments at the Memorial Hall.

“One can scarcely walk about Manchester without coming across frequent examples of the grand in architecture. There is nothing to equal it since the building of Venice.”
Ed Glinert will lead you around the glories of Manchester architecture
