Book your group for an intensely satisfying intellectually enriching cultural tour of the capital of the North – Manchester – home to one of the greatest Pre-Raphaelite collections, stamping ground of Gaskell, Dickens and Thomas de Quincey, base for the Halle Orchestra, setting for some of the most stimulating examples of Victorian architecture in the country.
This is Manchester, the city of Waterhouse, Worthington, Walters and Wood; Barbirolli, Burgess and the BBC Philharmonic; where the gallery walls are filled with Millais, Rossetti, Holman Hunt and Ford Madox Brown, and the streets are lined with Classical temples, Gothic spires and Baroque beauty.
