Official tours of the Manchester Canals. Next up, Sat 3 August 2024, 12 noon from the Malmaison Hotel

Join official Manchester Bridgewater and Rochdale canals tour guide Ed Glinert on an eye-opening FREE tour of the city’s industrial waterways: the Rochdale Canal, the Bridgewater Canal and any others we can find. Glinert, Manchester’s leading historian, author of the forthcoming first ever epic history of the city, “Manchester: The Biography”, will guide you along the towpath revealing the most exciting stories (remind him about Bill Benny), pointing out the great buildings, for instance the one where a remarkable event led to Newton Heath becoming Manchester United, and noting the abandoned structures with a watery zeal as we head from the Malmaison Hotel at 3 Piccadilly, itself built above the Rochdale Canal, through the Gay Village and on to Castlefield.
