Discover Manchester in depth on Jonathan Schofield’s Tours
Jonathan Schofield has pounded the streets of Greater Manchester leaving no cobble unturned. There’s scarcely a sculpture, a stained glass window or a snippet of architectural splendour that Schofield doesn’t know about.
He’s literally written the book on Manchester’s secrets – in fact he’s written three (available to purchase here) so his tours are packed with all the information you could ever wish to know and plenty you couldn’t even imagine.
Whatever your tastes run to – there’s a tour for that. From the Saturday walkabout series dealing with Manchester’s music, pubs and ghosts to the industrial history and urban development revealed in the Secrets of Ancoats and New Islington tour, you’ll learn lots and laugh more.
From Marx and Engels to Suffragettes and slavery, there are topics to interest everyone. City centre tours and forays further afield, walking tours and bike tours, daytime tours and ghastly gruesome night tours – tour many to mention.
There are also exclusive tours where you can access places usually out of bounds to the general public such as The Edgar Wood Centre, the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel, Heaton Hall, Chetham's Library, Gorton Monastery and many others.
Gift vouchers are available, redeemable against any tour subject to availability, plus a special buy six vouchers, receive eight deal. Jonathan Schofield does not lead every tour – there is only one of him – but all tours are led by a full-qualified guide who knows their subject inside out and back to front.
