Fancy learning about the recent history of the Northern Quarter as told through its street art? Well this tour, which is part of Design Manchester, is for you! If you’re in need of a recommendation this Street Art Tour was featured in the Telegraph’s “Incredible Street Arts Tours“.

Learn about the creation of the Northern Quarter as we know it today, find out the major names behind some of the area’s oldest street art and why it became concentrated here, and explore the recent wave of paste ups, murals and paintings that create the unique feel of the Northern Quarter. An insight into how modern art movements in Manchester hope to continue to drive creativity within the neighbourhood, and how art was key in the redevelopment of a fast decaying area of the city.

We’ve long thought the best way to get to know a place is through its art and its artists. Hayley absolutely proved this theory by presenting us with a completely alternative view of a city we thought we already knew fairly well. Her depth of knowledge, thrown together with an easy manner and a ton of passion made for a really great, tailored experience that left us wanting to know more!East Street Arts
