Manchester LGBT Heritage Walk

Manchester LGBT Heritahe Walk Logo EditCome on the trail of Manchester’s LGBT heritage and discover the stories that lie beneath the city’s rainbow mosaics…

Meet outside the LGF:  Number 5 Richmond Street M1 3HF

Price per Person: We would like to ask that if you can afford to pay just £2.00 towards our overall costs for this event, which go to paying for the historian to give the tour

Event Full Details: So you’ve seen those rainbow mosaics scattered across the city but you don’t know what they signify? Why not us and come on the Manchester LGBT heritage trail to find out?

With the help of local historian Paul Fairweather you will see the city with new eyes and discover more about Manchester’s hidden LGBT history as you are guided around the city. Stories will be shared, places of interest pointed out, and the city’s LGBT history brought to life.

The trail itself lasts around an hour and a half and will require walking. Appropriate footwear is advised.


We can’t guarantee the weather but we can guarantee that you’ll be entertained and informed!
