Hello! I’m Stephen, your creative and enthusiastic host to the wonderful city of Manchester. My love for this city is deep-rooted, especially in its remarkable ability to stitch together different eras into a vibrant, walkable maze. From the remnants of Roman Manchester through the buzz of the Industrial Revolution to our dynamic, digital present, every step here is a step through time. I’m fascinated by our rich industrial and social history, and there’s nothing I enjoy more than sharing the stories behind our historic landmarks. When it comes to food, Manchester’s diverse cuisines are a playground for culinary discovery, and I’m always excited to try new places. Whether we're wandering through the city center or the historic streets of Ancoats, my knowledge of Manchester’s past, particularly its role as Cottonopolis during the Industrial Revolution, will give you a unique perspective on this ever-evolving city. Let's dive into the heart of Manchester together!
