The Great Northern Tunnel Tours

 

These have to be booked ahead but are very very special, leading people into the atmospheric underworld of Manchester under the Great Northern Goods Warehouse. They are visually stunning but tell a moving story. If you feel tempted then remember to bring a torch and wear sensible shoes as the tunnel is dark and there is some mud. But if you're in good health and capable of walking down (and back up) fifty or so stairs to access the tunnel then you're in for an unforgettable experience. The tour lasts just over an hour.

Meet outside The Bridgewater Hall, Lower Mosley Street, City centre, M2 3WS 10 minutes before your tour time.

Haunted Underworld - the best ghost tour in Manchester

Manchester’s premier ghost tour, delivering dark, dastardly and moving haunted tales. Public tours at 5.30pm on Thursdays and Fridays and at 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays every week. So what happens? In a dark and mysterious undercroft of the city centre old stories are coming alive. Tales might include those of dead artists, sinister magicians, tragic lovers and body-snatchers. Expect the unexpected and also lots of laughs. People who are brave enough to come on the tour should try not to faint (something that happened last time).  “I would like to thank Jonathan Schofield for scaring the bejesus out of me on the Haunted Underworld tour last night.” Andrew Jackson, Import Manager.

Meet at the War Memorial in St Ann's Square, 10 minutes before your tour time.
