You’ll get to experience the city as if you’re with a friend who lives there - although since our Manchester hosts are all so friendly, they soon will be your friend.

Do you see yourself at Old Trafford, aka the Theatre of Dreams or is your vibe more a trendy, artistic neighbourhood? Sipping cocktails in the revitalised Salford Quays dockyards, having a tipple at a hip rooftop bar or a pint in a local pub? 

There’s more arts and culture here than you can shake a stick at (it’s a local expression, trust us) so you could check out an arts institution like The Lowry or discover life on Manchester’s canals. Just let us know what you’d like to experience, and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

After all, we know that a city is more than a place, but a feeling. And so that’s exactly what you’ll experience on your day with your host, as you discover Manchester your way.
