About me

Hi, I’m Roy and a very proud resident and lover of my exciting, vibrant and cosmopolitan City of Manchester. I've lived in Manchester for 64 years and find that my city, Manchester, is one of the most exciting cities in the world. Manchester has been the founding bedrock of the industrial revolution and innovation and has many exciting museums exhibiting this. More recently Manchester has been the inspiration for some of the most creative musical minds in the world from the Hollies; Simply Red and Oasis. What I love about Manchester is that it constantly surprises me with new things to see and experience whether that is culture, the arts, the fabulous architecture, sport or music. All my acquaintances from all over the world are surprised by the diversity of interests when they visit Manchester. Manchester has many hidden gems that they just fall in love with in this vibrant and exciting modern city. If you make a booking with me I can take you on wonderfully relaxing walking exploration of this wonderful city, we can find many interesting things to do in the ‘town centre’ such as the vibrant Northern Quarter, with its rich history and which also comes alive at night. You may want to know about the alternative modern areas such as Spinningfields, well known for exciting places to relax and dine. There is also the famous ‘Village’ and historic Castlefield all within easy walking distance. So, if you want to discover one of Manchester’s coolest neighbourhoods that has something for everyone then I'm your Local!

MANCHESTER, KICKSTART YOUR TRIP TO MANCHESTER

January 2019

Great weekend - Thank you!

Had a good walk around the city and learnt loads about Manchester we had no idea about despite a few previous visits. It was really good that Kieran knew the areas so well and had personal anecdotes to bring the city to life. Followed Kierans personalised recommendations and had a brilliant dinner and night out after and he showed us where to go from our hotel the next day to get to the main shopping centres and eateries.

MANCHESTER, KICKSTART YOUR TRIP TO MANCHESTER

July 2018

A friendly local doin' it with passion!

I had a fabulous, sun-drenched* morning with Kieran, born and raised in Manchester. I was looking for someone with a lifetime's worth of personal stories to tell, and that is what I got. I never just listen – I ask lots of questions and Kieran had tales for every single one. So if you like getting to know a city through its loyal locals, try this guy! * Your weather may wary. ;-)
