Think you know Manchester? Think again?

  • How many bells are in the peel of Manchester Town Hall?
  • How much did it cost to covert the Manchester Central station into the Greater Manchester Exhibition & Events Centre (G-MEX) in the 1980’s?
  • Who was Manchester’s first millionaire?
  • Which building caused the President of Sony Computer Entertainment to send a letter of apology, which was published in the Manchester Evening News?

You can find all the answers and much more by taking yourself on a Walk Talk Tours ‘Manchester Now & Then’ personal audio tour of the city.

Listen to the dulcet tones of Jonathan Keeble as he guides you around the streets of Manchester from the majestic Town Hall, down to the former home of the Hacienda, onto the Hidden Gem and then finishing in Cathedral Gardens – overlooked by historic Chetham’s and ultra modern Urbis.

The beauty about Walk Talk Tours is it’s so simple to use and fabulous value for money. Five english pounds buys you the tour that you can then download onto the device of your choice (as well as a downloadable map) – iPod, mp3 or mobile phone music player.

The tour covers approximately 2.5 miles and can be completed in roughly two hours, as long as you don’t stop for coffee or get distracted by the shops like me!

So don’t delay… download today.
