Discover iconic locations of Manchester music

Rewind back in time to where it all began, and discover the Manchester locations that helped to shape and shift music and culture into what it is today. We’ll explore some of the most legendary Manchester music venues and iconic locations that are steeped in the history of the artists.


From the infamous Salford Lads Club that resides on The Smiths’ ‘The Queen is Dead’ LP, to the Southern Cemetery Gates that inspired one of their most classic songs, we’ve got plenty of landmarks and locations for you to see.


Explore the cultural legacy of some of Manchester’s most famous music venues such as The Free Trade Hall which held some of the most renowned gigs of all time and of course the most famous of all, The Hacienda. Launched by the manager of Joy Division and New Order, the club was one of the most famous venues of the 80s.


Explore your favourite Manchester bands

From Joy Division, New Order and The Smiths to Oasis, The Stone Roses, Sex Pistols and Take That, Manchester has a great deal to offer in terms of musical backgrounds. If you have a favourite band, let us know. We’ll tailor the tour around your preferences and take you to all of the sights that we know you’ll love.


Over the years, we’ve operated hundreds of Manchester music tours so it’s safe to say that during that time, we’ve scratched beneath the surface to uncover some of the most iconic locations that have slipped under the radar. We’re not here to bring you the ordinary, we’ll show you beyond the tourist attractions.
