Each stop is marked with either a poignant poetry piece, written by Danny, or an anecdote from his time on the streets. Danny is testament to the positive impacts that art and literature can have on an individual who has been, or still is, homeless. With this in mind, this tour will make you stop and appreciate landmarks as emblematic as Manchester Cathedral down to singular pieces of street art in the Northern Quarter.
Our Off the Cobbles Tour is a mix of Manchester's history, social issues and personal stories told by our guides Danny. He is from Liverpool so his accent can be hard to understand at times.
