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

Britannia Basin

Discover somewhere new.

Explore an area of the city beyond the Castlefield Basin, tucked away near the Bridgewater Canal. Once a rural idyll, then an industrial hub, and now a predominantly residential district, discover this ‘village’ within a city, with stories of Hulme Hall, rowing regattas, mills, molasses and 21st Century city living.

We’ll meet outside The Wharf in Castlefield and finish 45 minutes later at the Banyan Tree, Ellesmere St where we’ll take a buffet lunch of sandwiches, fries & salad.

Victorian Crime City

Murder, Sherlock, Fighting, Martyrs, Swindlers.

Join us on an after-work, walking tour exploring the dark underbelly of Manchester. Hear tales of desperate deaths through violence and poverty, a brilliant real-life Sherlock Holmes, teenage street fighting gangs, the Manchester Martyrs, brutal life in the slums, crooked swindlers, and maybe even a headless baby and a lost graveyard!
