Whalley Range & Alexandra Park

What You’ll See

The fascinating and stirring story of the creation of a planned posh suburb, the changes over time, its relationship with Alexandra Park, it mighty buildings, its churches and its people.

There are tales of bravery and of farce, there are laughs and there is drama. There is music of course, and stories of lost aquariums, pleasure gardens and mighty mansions.

If you live in the area or are looking for a tour that's a bit different and focuses on an area outside the city centre, then this tour will not disappoint.

The tour lasts an hour and a half starts from the southern gates of Alexandra Park at the junction of Alexandra Road South and Demesne Road
