The Ghosts of Afflecks & the Northern Quarter
Afflecks and the Northern Quarter sums up much of what is good about Manchester, a sense of independence, a sense of radicalism, and a big dose of fun. This tour takes in all those elements starting off in Stevenson Square in the Northern Quarter it captures the art, the mood and the architecture of this fascinating area with visits inside and outside premises and then finishes off in Afflecks for an extended visit. The tour goes behind the scenes to the ‘floor where the public don’t venture’, the fourth floor, with its strange, abandoned flat. There is the spookiest staircase in Manchester here, abandoned and creaky, with not one, but three fabulous ghost stories.
