Manchester Street Art Tour

Take a 2 hour Manchester street art walking tour through the city’s history led by a local knowledgeable guide.

The best way to understand a city is through its street art. The murals painted on the sides of the Northern Quarter’s many protected buildings tell the story of revolution, decline and reinvention. They are the story of Manchester as told by those that live here.

More than just pretty pictures, the art of the Northern Quarter celebrates the city’s triumphs of architecture and heritage. The opening of the Arndale shopping mall in the 1970s lead to mass shop closures and deep decline, however the region reinvented itself with art and counterculture to become a mainstay of Manchester life.

This multi-award winning tour runs through the deeper history of Manchester that many other tours miss. Focusing on unearthing the spoken history of Manchester, these are tales of the people of Manchester documented with spray canisters and brushes.

The tour is an informal but informative way to get to know a city bursting with culture and history.
