In a city so down to earth and friendly as Manchester, we guarantee it wouldn’t take more than a minute or two for someone to stop and help you out if you were looking a little lost.

But you’ll skip that completely when you explore MCR with one of our Manchester hosts by your side - you’ll feel like a local in no time, we promise.

Your host would love to share with you their favourite places to eat, hang out and explore, and make recommendations for the rest of your trip, and feel free to ask as many questions as you like along the way.

Get to know the best ways to move around - we reckon the best way to figure out the buses is to use them! So why not start in the city centre, then take the bus to the revitalised Salford Quays Docklands, where you’ll find trendy bars for a cheeky cocktail or pint, The Lowry arts complex and plenty of other cultural gems.

Don’t forget to ask your host for a few northern expressions too - they’ll make you feel even more at home!

    • Choose your pace - a casual stroll, a canal cruise or on public transport
    • Visit some of Manchester's iconic spots, neighbourhoods and buildings
    • Take the experience at whatever pace suits you - a leisurely stroll, pausing at a pub for a pint or squeezing in as much as possible
    • Get a taste of Manchester through an inspiring lens and acquaint yourself with the briefest of histories, some general city info, how to get around and where you should visit
    • Your host will reveal recommendations for things to do during the rest of your trip, and feel free to ask anything you’d love the inside scoop on!
    • This experience will be personalized to you!
