This unique walking tour is led by Danny, an “adopted Mancunian”, to show people the city’s streets as he has lived them. His tour is a thoughtful and poetic exploration that will transport you to the flip side of Manchester, beyond the mere surface of its tourist attractions and into the depths of his own experience of homelessness.
His passion is abundantly clear throughout the tour as he helps you see Manchester in a different light by contextualising some of the city’s most beautiful areas in the experience of Manchester’s homeless community, and his own personal experience. Each stop is marked with either a poignant poetry piece, written by Danny, or an anecdote from his time on the streets.
This tour is educational and enjoyable in equal parts, with a wonderful guide who is happy to answer any of your questions about his experience of homelessness. Combating stigmas around homelessness with his words, Danny’s tour will open your eyes to the real experiences of homeless people in Manchester.
