I love to tell fascinating stories about the original, modern city. Delighted to tailor guiding services to my visitors.
It's a city of firsts. We invented the computer, split the atom and discoved feminism. We have amazing architecture from Victorian cotton palaces to millennial towers of glass and steel. There's museums and football and an amazing food scene. One of my specialisms is Manchester Food Walks - combining culture, history and cuisine.
My day job is radio, so I'm used to telling stories! I also love to show off the Northern Quarter and Ancoats, the city's coolest districts and am very familiar with the city's LGBT scene, centred on the Gay Village.
