It was our first time in Manchester. Eileen was entertaining and knowledgable and we saw and learnt far more than we ever could have done by wandering around on outr own. Lovely weather helped to make it a very enjoyable two hours.

Our guide Denise was very knowledgeable, open and friendly. Even managed to keep a grumpy teenager engaged. A very enjoyable 1.5-hour tour. Highly recommend.

My husband and I did this - he is a local and really enjoyed it - it was well paced and excellent commentary from John Alker. It was a great mix joining up the past and present.

Did the Ancoats walk on a damp Sunday afternoon, but the weather did not dampen the guides enthusiasm and incredible knowledge of the area.  Learnt so much is 2 hours about this vital area of Manchester's history. Will be booking other tours.

Hi, if you mean the Discover Manchester walking tour it lasts 1.5 to 2 hours and you would walk approximately 1.5 miles in that time.
