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.

Didsbury means Grand villas, Gothic towers and glorious gardens in what is the most unspoilt suburb of Manchester, a picturesque prism of pulchritudiness.

On this tour through the vistas of the village we will find the home of the celebrated author Howard Spring; hear tales about the anarchic comics Steve Coogan, Rick Mayall and Adrian Edmonson; marvel at the riches of the merchants Philip Godlee, Joseph Birley and Daniel Adamson; and recall the prolix alderman Fletcher Moss (stopping at the latter’s tucked-away cottage, the Old Parsonage, the oldest house in Manchester).

We finish with the botanical beauty that is the Alpine garden; ancient St James’s Church; the Old Cock Inn and the magnificent Towers, the finest mansion in Manchester.

*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
