A tuneful swoop through the popular music scene of the greatest music city on the planet.

Along with football, music is Manchester’s great obsession. This walking tour is an affectionate insight into the popular music scene of the city from the 1960s to the present day, examining the huge range of inspirational sounds that have shaken the musical world. This walking tour follows a route past the venues and locations that have formed the backdrop to the city’s lyrical legacy. There will be stories and anecdotes to move, amuse and entertain as we walk the streets and of course there will be your favourite tunes to enjoy; feel free to sing, dance and air guitar along.

Expect insights and anecdotes about The Smiths, The Bee Gees, The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Oasis, New Order, Joy Division, 10cc, The Hollies, James, The Fall, Elbow, John Cooper Clarke and more.

It is recommended that you wear comfortable and suitable clothes and shoes for walking and being outdoors. Rain is possible throughout the year. This tour is suitable for wheelchair users.

These tours are guided by professional Manchester tour guides Emma Fox and Jonathan Schofield.
