Metro Modern – our new guide to Manchester’s Twentieth Century architecture : 26/10/13


Metro Modern, our new free map & guide to Manchester’s Twentieth Century Architecture will be launched on Saturday 26th of October 2013.

With the help of our handy guide you will be able to tour the city by foot or on a free Metro Shuttle Bus – all our buildings are within a short hop of Manchester’s three Metro Shuttle Bus routes.

Join us on a 1960s Manchester City Transport Bus from Victoria Station (1pm, Sat 26th october – free event) on our very own Metro Modern tour of the City, before being dropped off at the Museum of Transport for refreshments and a tour of the Museum. We are celebrating the launch in partnership with the Museum of Transport, Greater Manchester.

Reserve your free place here but remember, seats are strictly limited so don’t book a place unless you are absolutely definitely coming along – wouldn’t want to deprive someone else of all the fun would you? (The bus will return us to Victoria, leaving the museum at about 4.15pm)

Remember – from the 26th of October, maps will be available for just the price of a stamp – order on-line here. We will also be distributing maps to selected cultural venues.

Free maps will also be available from: RibaHub (Portland Street), Fig & Sparrow (Oldham Street), TAKK (Tarriff Street), Visitor Information Centre (Piccadilly Gardens), Manchester Art Gallery (Mosely Street).

Here’s a sneaky preview..

    Hi, I’m confused over the dates – is the bus tour 18th or 26th? Carol

    Hi – as the bus is full, have tickets for the museum only. What time does that part start?
