Groups can explore Manchester’s trendy Spinningfields District with a brand new self-guided tour from Treasure Trails.

The new trail takes approximately 90-minutes to complete, spanning 1.3 miles of walking, and will explore some of the city’s architectural highlights, including John Rylands Library, the Town Hall and Victorian Gothic brickwork.

Discover Manchester’s legendary gem

Taking the form of a treasure hunt, the trail begins in Albert Square in front of Manchester Town Hall.

Under the guise of searching for a legendary gem, fought over for centuries and brought back to Britain in the 19th century; groups will be challenged to find the gem’s location, armed with some cryptic instructions and a map.

The wheelchair-friendly route journeys across Deansgate, crossing Spinningfields to the river Irwell, before returning to the grassed square in the centre of Spinningfields.

Group treasure hunt

Treasure Trails offer an imaginative way for groups to explore a new destination; particularly for group travel organisers wishing to include a self-guided tour as part of the itinerary.
