Freshwalks City. Movers, shakers and city slickers.

Our City walks are bite-sized versions of the original experience, courtesy of our team of qualified tour guides.

Our mission is to get Manchester’s business community walking more and lunchtime is perfect to stretch your legs around town. You are going to meet some amazing people, make valuable business contacts and return to the office buzzing with energy and ideas.

There’ll be a few nuggets of local knowledge sprinkled across the walks but first and foremost, it’s about learning something new whilst getting gentle exercise on carefully selected routes that will stimulate interaction and conversation.

  • Light exercise
  • Network on the move
  • Learn something new
  • Stimulate your brain (and have a more productive afternoon)
  • Lunch or coffee at a local independent
  • Encourage positive behavioural change in yourself

43_Manchester Bee (Cathedral Quarter)

We’re going on another bee hunt – this time on the northern fringes of the city centre – around Manchester Cathedral and the Printworks. Explore the Manchester symbol of hard work and cooperation found in our glorious Cottonopolis buildings, including a rooftop garden with its own beehives.

Pilcrow Pub

44_Fashionable Clubs and Societies

Hear tales of the fashionable clubs and societies of 19th Century Manchester, centred on what was ‘the handsomest street in Manchester’ (Mosley Street).

12:30 - 14:00

45_Statues of Manchester

For our 45th city walk, we are collaborating with Tour Manchester. We plan to tweak a previous route and meet outside the Bridgewater Hall, taking a route (approx 45 mins) through the centre of Manchester, ending in St Ann’s Square. En-route we’ll learn about some of the statues that adorn our city centre.

12:30 - 14:00

47_Other Manchester Women

This walk highlights a selection of historical Manchester women whose good – and bad – actions may have been overshadowed by those of more prominent local heroines. Without mention of any Pankhursts, hear of the talents, lives and misdemeanours of Manchester women.
