The tour brings to life the difficult living and working conditions that Jews and non-Jews of the area struggled through in order to better themselves. 
Our guide will captivate you with tales and anecdotes, bringing to life the characters and institutions of former times.
And you can also find out how world history was made here in Cheetham Hill.
