There are a number of guided tours around the city, with various points on interest. Some examples of tours you might find interesting are: Strangeways Prison, The Manchester Music Tour, The Football History Tour, Manchester Architecture, and the Alan Turing tour. In fact, Alan Turing is such a local hero (and a global one) that the Manchester Jurys Inn Hotel created an Alan Turing Tribute.
Located in the heart of Manchester (just a 20 minute walk from Jurys Inn), The Printworks offers a “state of the art” entertainment centre bursting with restaurants, clubs, bars, and a cinema. Whether grabbing a bite to eat, enjoying live music or heading to the cinema with the kids, The Printworks has plenty to keep you entertained – we recommend ‘The Hard Rock Café’ for a fun/unique dining experience for all the family.
