Please Note:

Unfortunately, the Trail is not marked as friendly for wheelchairs or pushchairs due to a number of steps along the route.

Bring your four-legged friends along! This Trail is dog friendly.

The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at Q-Park Piazza, just a five minute walk away. Or why not try one of Manchester’s fantastic Park and Ride services? The Trail start is perfectly placed for access via the tram, with a nearby tram stop at St Peter’s Square.

There are some fantastic events in Manchester’s calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful city. However, you may find that some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access on these occasions. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Manchester Visitor Information.

There are toilets available at the People’s History Museum and the John Rylands Library. There are a myriad of cafes, restaurants, pubs and other eating establishments to visit from Clue 13 onwards. 

Why not make a day of it by taking a look inside Manchester Cathedral or visiting one of Manchester’s fantastic attractions, like the Science and Industry Museum or the People’s History Museum? You could even try our other Manchester Trails to uncover more twisting tales about this amazing city!
