I had a wonderful time on Eileen Allen's tour. What a charming and informed woman she is. I learnt so much and enjoyed it tremendously. Ask her about the story of the entire street moving.

Hi, if you mean the Discover Manchester walking tour it lasts 1.5 to 2 hours and you would walk approximately 1.5 miles in that time.
