Join Skyliner in learning about the creation of the Northern Quarter as we know it today, find out the major names behind some of the area's oldest street art and those behind the most recent installations such as the Cities of Hope exhibition. Skyliner tours will identify lesser known heritage sites and highlight how modern art movements in Manchester hope to continue to drive creativity within this very unique neighbourhood.

The street art tours are the only tours of their kind in the city. They have been extensively researched through interviews with artists and they explore, not only the street art but also housing and social issues. The tours venture in Ancoats over the invisible wall known as Great Ancoats Street and investigate how art and architects worked together to create a cohesive space for living in.

The Multi Award-Winning Skyliner specialises in the unusual or alternative side of the city with a regular Northern Quarter Street Art Tour as featured in The Telegraph's "Incredible Street Art Tours", as well as bespoke tours for groups. Other popular tours have included "Art in Architecture" looking at sculpture and murals hidden in public buildings, and "Pomona Island" where the industrial wastelands are explored as if delving into an alternative countryside.

Tours run fortnightly alternating between Saturdays and Sundays, 11am - 1pm. Other dates and times available upon request.

Skyliner tours are run by Hayley Flynn and are family friendly.
