Manchester Walking Tours

The Manchester Walking Tours app provides an audio visual experience that allows you to explore the city and discover its defining moments and untold stories using routes created by the people who know Manchester best. Each tour is enhanced with layers of extra content; images from the city archives; all waiting to be discovered as you stroll.

This app gives you a heads-up experience: plug in your headphones, pop your mobile device in your pocket and simply follow our audio directions without ever having to look down at a screen. If you do want extra guidance there's an on-screen map available at all times showing your location, tour route and tour points.
