Terrific tour with great food

Heidi, our guide, provided a fabulous insight into the history and food traditions of the area. Getting to sample such a wide variety of items amongst the regenerated buildings while hearing her stories was thoroughly enjoyable.

Combining great food with the city’s history

What a wonderful way of finding out about some of the history of Manchester, it’s diverse culture and beautiful buildings, whilst enjoying some delicious food in the hidden gems off the main streets around Ancoats, Northern Quarter and town. Was so nice to have a guided walk around the streets with Danny (our tour guide) who told us some fascinating and interesting facts about Manchester and the link between the food we enjoyed and the area.

Fantastic His-tour-y

Really interesting tour around the heritage and highlights of Northern Manchester… accompanied by a variety of delicious food dishes from some great eateries as we navigated through the history… and led by the fabulous Heidi who looked after us superbly well with her local knowledge and engaging personality
