Come and join in, it’s absolutely FREE! Here at Social Circle we make it our business to offer you the best of what Manchester has to offer. Our selection of walks enable you to to come along and explore this great city, and meet new people in Manchester along the way.

It’s Europe’s biggest park, a verdant, arboreal landscape filling north Manchester, dominated by a gorgeous Georgian Grecian Grade I mansion, once home of the Egerton family, designed by James Wyatt of the famous Wyatt family of architects.

We will peruse and perambulate the park, tell the story of the Pope’s 1981 visit, Roy and Haley’s tete-a-tete by the lake, find the last remaining vestige of Manchester’s first Town Hall, and worship at the Classical fountains and embellishments.

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

*Please check website for updated times and meeting points as they are subject to change*

 
It's a great way to enjoy the kind of in-depth conversation with someone you'd never have on a Friday or Saturday night
