Manchester Street Art Private Walking Tour (1-25 persons) 2 hours
The best way to understand a city is through its street art. The murals painted on the sides of the Northern Quarter’s many protected buildings tell the story of revolution, decline and reinvention.
They are the story of Manchester as told by those that live here. More than just pretty pictures, the art of the Northern Quarter celebrates the city’s triumphs of architecture and heritage. The opening of the Arndale shopping mall in the 1970s lead to mass shop closures and deep decline, however the region reinvented itself with art and counterculture to become a mainstay of Manchester life.
This tour runs through the deeper history of Manchester that many other tours miss. Focusing on unearthing the spoken history of Manchester, these are tales of the people of Manchester documented with spray canisters and brushes.
