Heritage bus trip and tour of the Museum of Transport
Event code: X360
Wed 24 July, 13:30–16:30 ▪ Bus departs from University Place to the Museum of Transport

Discover Greater Manchester’s public road transport history in appropriate style with a trip to the Museum of Transport at Cheetham Hill.  A heritage double-decker bus will collect you from the Congress site, transport you to the Museum and return you after your visit. On arrival at the Museum, you will receive a guided tour of one of Britain’s biggest collections of restored buses, coaches and trams. From a Victorian horse drawn bus to the prototype Metrolink tram, you will be able to see and sit in fascinating vehicles that took Greater Manchester folk to work, shops and outings to the coast and countryside.  The Museum has its own tea room, and a shop selling models, books and other souvenirs.

There is a charge of £2 for this tour, which includes the round-trip bus journey and admission to the Museum. Numbers will be limited to 64 people in total. Please register in advance: you can do this at any time before the Congress by emailing tours@ichstm2013.com with your details; or you can sign up in person at the Congress Events Desk.
