Description

Embrace the spirit of Manchester, and its worker bee symbol, with this puzzle-filled tour celebrating the diverse and transgressive lives of its people throughout the centuries. A 16th century polymath who dabbled with the occult, one of the first war memorials to the common soldier, a library built in defiance of those who had written off the city as dirty and uncomfortable, an artist who shone light on the struggles of the industrial worker, this entertaining and interactive game champions the city's unsung heroes and shows you not just its highlights but its hidden secrets too.

Expect to see Chetham's Library, Manchester Cathedral, a homeless messiah, John Rylands Library, the world famous printworks and a church colloquially known as "the Hidden Gem". All this plus riddles, challenges, great pubs and cafes and plenty of surprises. An immersive exploration of the city centre, perfect for anyone looking to be inspired by Manchester's history of rejuvenation, rebellion and rebirth.

How It Works

Your team will receive clues on your phones that, once deciphered, will guide you to interesting and scenic parts of the city. At each of these you will solve riddles, discover facts and unlock your next clue.

The route is walking distance and features optional breaks at great pubs, bars and cafes along the way. The clues require no prior knowledge and come with hints to make the experience something everyone can enjoy.
