‘Explore Altrincham’ with award-winning Tour Guide, Jonathan Schofield
Altrincham Unlimited have announced the launch of the ‘Explore Altrincham’ monthly walking and pub tours. The tours have been designed by award-winning tour guide Jonathan Schofield and the first will launch to the public in July 2018 and they will run throughout the year.
The tours will allow those who know Altrincham well to learn something new about the town and give visitors the opportunity to explore the rich history of Altrincham, woven together by the well-practiced storytelling prowess of Jonathan Schofield or one of his fellow guides, they promise to be filled with wit and humour.
Elizabeth Faulkner, Altrincham Unlimited’s BID Manager explained,
“The tours will give local residents and visitors from further afield another great reason to visit and spend time in Altrincham and discover all it has to offer. We are fortunate that the town has such an interesting history and it has been fascinating to watch as curious, quirky and sometimes shocking stories have been revealed during Jonathan’s research. It’s true to say that those who take part in the tours will never look at Altrincham in the same way again”.
Initially there will be two monthly tours, one walking and one pub tour, generally on the last Saturday and Thursday of each month. The tours will guide participants throughout the town, exploring its alleys and ginnels, the layers of period architecture and the enthralling stories of the people and events who occupied and created Altrincham.
- Tickets are priced at £10 per person and are on sale via Eventbrite by searching ‘Explore Altrincham’. Tickets must be booked in advance.
- The first public walking tour will take place on Saturday 28th July and the first pub tour on Thursday 26th July.
- All of the tour dates can be found here.
