A leading tour guide for Manchester, Jonathan Schofield has been a registered Blue Badge Guide since 1996 and is the editor of Manchester Books Limited, having written several books on the North West. He is a regular broadcaster on local and national radio recently appearing on Melvyn Bragg’s The Matter of the North on BBC Radio 4.
A ‘Highly Commended’ Manchester Tourism Award winner for the Best Tourism Experience in Greater Manchester (awarded for guiding services), his tours have included titles such as ‘Radical Manchester’, ‘Incredible Interiors’, ‘Engels in Manchester’ and many others.
Jonathan says, “Guiding is a rare mix of authority, presentation, information and entertainment; I want my guests to leave feeling excited about the topic we’ve covered. I also want them to have a good time and have a bit of a laugh when occasion calls. I want the tour to be memorable and the complete opposite of a bore.”
