Who are we?
Elemental Tours is a new way of looking at the city. We encourage our walking tour participants to think beyond the human and to engage with the material environment of Manchester. We draw attention to its water, its air, its stone and its fire and how these things have shaped the city and the humans that live in it, and we explore how humans have tried, and sometimes failed, to control these things.
We also invite you to join our online community to continue discussions on flooding, quarrying, silt, disease, smoke and much more. Learn how to get involved in environmental programs taking place in Manchester and around the world. Explore important ideas in the environmental humanities. Share stories about your own encounters with nature in the city.
Subscribe to get monthly updates from Elemental Tours, including upcoming walking tour dates and highlights from our online community.
You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.
