Discover Manchester's real ale pubs
Manchester has an enviable selection of real ale pubs across the city. With so many to choose from, where do you start? It helps to have a knowledgeable guide, and they don't come much better than CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale.
CAMRA has produced five "Pub Staggers" to guide you around some of Manchester's finest taverns. They each start from one of the city centre's four main rail stations, meaning there's a convenient starting point nearby no matter where you are.
As well as high quality ale, the Staggers offer a look at some of Manchester's best pub buildings, including the the strikingly tiled Peveril of the Peak and the homely Castle Hotel, also home to the Manchester Egg.
Each Stagger is downloadable as a PDF file to print out and take with you.
