Hi there! I'm Darren, a local host here in Manchester. If you're looking for an enthusiastic and open-minded guide to this vibrant city, then look no further! One of the things I love most about Manchester is its rich culture and history, from the hidden gems to the more famous landmarks. And of course, being a football fanatic, I can tell you everything you need to know about the sport and its history in this city. But that's not all there is to Manchester! As a lover of music, I know all the best spots to catch a live show or explore the city's rich musical history. And with my in-depth knowledge of the social scene, I can take you on a tour of the hottest bars and clubs in town. So whether you're a local looking to discover more about your hometown or a visitor looking to experience the true Manchester vibe, I'm your guy. Let's explore this amazing city together!
