New Manchester Walks on water during this canal trip (with commentary) as we cruise along the Bridgewater Canal, Manchester Ship Canal and River Irwell. This time we link the two great transport forms that Manchester invented: schlepping goods by water and people by iron railroad as we glide along the water on Britain’s first canal under the bridges of the world’s first railway.

On the water’s edge, we also see:
* The new Coronation Street studios.
* Media City.
* Manchester United.
* The Imperial War Museum North.
* The Lowry Centre.
* The old docks of what was Britain’s 4th biggest port.
* Mode Wheel Locks.
* Castlefield.
* Spinningfields.

Those are just some of the sights you will see in a way you’ve never seen them before. We also go through the only Manchester lock – at Pomona – an unusual and exhilarating experience as the boat rises or falls to meet the level of the other waterway and the fortress-like walls of the lock disappear from view.

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

 
I love the guided walking tours - I've learnt so much about Manchester!
