Cotton’s rich legacy can be found across Manchester, from the fabulously ornate Watts Warehouse (now the Britannia Hotel) to the 18th century weavers cottages, remarkable survivals on Portland Street; from the Town Hall, topped by a golden cotton boll, to the Royal Exchange where cotton merchants traded in the world’s biggest room.

We pay homage to the great cotton palaces (the Royal Exchange, John Rylands Library) and the ruthless merchants who populated them, particularly Nathan Mayer Rothschild, described by Lord Byron in Don Juan as a “true lord of Europe”.

The tour is led by Ed Glinert, one of the monastery’s official guides and joint founder of New Manchester Walks.
