O que você fará

We're Invisible (Manchester) - a social enterprise that trains those who have experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides. Your guide Danny will guide you through the city streets as he has lived them. Meet him at Manchester Cenotaph to begin your journey across the city.

This tour is educational and enjoyable in equal parts, with a wonderful guide who is happy to answer any of your questions about his experience of homelessness.

Combating stigmas around homelessness with his words, Danny’s tour will open your eyes to the real experiences of homeless people in Manchester.

Other things to note
Our Off the Cobbles Tour is a mix of Manchester's history, social issues and personal stories told by Danny. He is from Liverpool so his accent can be hard to understand at times.

As we work with vulnerable people, it's important that guests turn up and don't let them down. Of course, emergencies occasionally arise, so if you are unable to make the tour, please let us know ASAP by emailing lauren@invisible-cities.org

Invisible (Manchester) is part of Invisible Cities, a social enterprise that trains people who have been affected by homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city.

Danny, your guide, is originally from Liverpool so beware of his strong 'Scouse' accent. Danny spent many, many years in Manchester and is the perfect guide for an "Off the Cobbles" Tour. He is funny, entertaining and very passionate about Manchester.

I'm Lauren, and I'm here to coordinate the tour, answer any queries and make sure that you and Danny both have a great time!

Onde você estará

Each stop is marked with either a poignant poetry piece, written by Danny, or an anecdote from his time on the streets. Danny is testament to the positive impacts that art and literature can have on an individual who has been, or still is, homeless. With this in mind, this tour will make you stop and appreciate landmarks as emblematic as Manchester Cathedral down to singular pieces of street art in the Northern Quarter.

the tour with Danny around Manchester city centre was a really special couple of hours - thought provoking and informative. It was an opportunity to get to know the city a little better but more importantly understand from someone who's been there what it is like to be homeless in a very human down to earth way. With some wonderful poetry as an added bonus. Highly recommended.

Danny is the most engaging and genuine man. We learnt so much about the experience of homelessness in the city, and came away feeling humbled and grateful for the outreach work that is being provided to help people who are on the streets. Danny’s poetry packs a punch, and it was enlightening to learn about a different side of life in the city. Thank you Danny!

Danny provided an excellent tour of the city, we visited places we hadn't seen on our past few days in Manchester and got a full understanding from Danny about his past living on these streets. Danny was friendly, funny and true gentleman. Would fully recommend this tour to anyone who does not know Manchester and would like a friendly face to show them around.

A unique experience in Manchester. Spent 2 hours with Danny and he gave some beautiful poetry and insights. Note: This is not a walk where you hear about the history or architecture of Manchester. It's specifically aimed at homelessness and rough sleeping.
