Take a walking tour of Ancoats & New Islington

Tue 24 October 2017
12:30 – 14:00
Meet at: Cutting Room Sq, Ancoats



The days of stuffy networking events might be numbered. Freshwalks are an attempt to get Manchester professionals away from their desks and meeting others whilst stretching their legs. It’s widely reported that productivity is boosted by good health and wellbeing, but it’s all too easy to get caught up in endless meetings and time in front of a computer.

For their 16th walk, Freshwalks will be meeting in Cutting Room Square, Ancoats and taking a circular route around the streets and canals of Ancoats and New Islington.

The walk will last approximately 1 hour, and end with soup and sandwich buffet lunch back at Ancoats Coffee Company in Royal Mills.

The tour will be led by Sue McCarthy, an official Green Badge Guide registered with the Institute of Tour Guiding. There'll be one or two nuggets of local insight sprinkled across the walks but first and foremost, it's about simple exercise on carefully selected routes that will stimulate interaction and conversation.
