If you’re in Manchester for a few days, a day, an hour or two, contact us to be taken round with an expert guide who will make the city come alive.

We are New Manchester Walks, a walks, talks and tours outfit, open to all guides who want to make the history of Manchester, the world’s first industrial city – the industrial strength city – come alive.

We provide an unrivalled and unmatchable programme of historical trips and tours in and around Manchester: from the Gothic glories and cotton palaces of central Manchester to the gleaming new dock side towers of Salford Quays; from the coal face of industrial Eastlands to the winding alleyways of Knutsford in leafy Cheshire.

We are the only Manchester guides to offer a complete programme on the history of all the city’s and area’s delights and sites: the Town Hall, Cathedral, Chetham’s, Art Gallery, John Rylands library, underground tunnels, music scene, political legacy, canals, cotton industry, football teams, wildlife, Jewish history and much more.

If our guides don’t do it or know it, it’s probably not worth doing or knowing.

Many of our tours can be booked through eventbrite. If the tour you’d like to come on is for sale on eventbrite please try and book in advance. It helps us gauge how many are coming and if we need to provide a second guide.
