If you’ve always wanted to find out more about Manchester but the idea of traipsing round the city’s famously soggy streets is just too off-putting, Manchester Taxi Tours could be the choice for you. Operated by a fully qualified Green Badge Guide, there are a number of tours to choose from, each offering a different take on Manchester and the surrounding countryside. Tours take in historical landmarks, buildings and can incorporate stop-offs at museums and other sites of interest. Options include a 2.5hr Manchester Tour taking in Northern Quarter, Ancoats Mills, Ethiad Stadium, Cheethams, Ordsall Hall, The Quays, Media City, University (and more) as well as city centre tours, tours for City, United or Coronation Street fans and tours of the universities and their local facilities aimed at new students. Our current favourite is the Manchester Murals tour which takes its lead from the Ford Madox Brown murals depicting the history of Manchester in the Town Hall. Check these famous paintings out before hopping in a cab and finding out about the history and inspiration behind each one.
