Gothic Manchester Walking Tour with Anne Beswick

Manchester is a buzzing, regenerated city full of hedonism, culture and sport, yeah? Yeah. Until you look deeper, it is. The gothic undertow in this city writhes just below its glossy surface. Mostly we’re blinded by the busyness of everyday life but this walking tour of our streets and backstreets will show you a little of what is hidden in plain view. Right here on the city streets is the evidence of death by disease, violence and despair. Right here is the Gothic in architecture and literature, a legacy from the past. Manchester isn’t only a superficial city. There’s more here than you know. Come and find out what really happened on the streets of our so-called original, modern city.

Join Anne, your local guide who has walked these streets and watched unnoticed for many, many years. She will remind you of the other side of Manchester.
