City Hosts

Manchester BID runs a team of tourist information and city welcome guides: our City Hosts.

The ambassadors are out and about around Manchester’s central retail district, giving help to visitors and acting as a liaison point between the BID team, retailers and restaurants.

The hosts work seven days a week, 363 days a year, and are based around the main shopping areas of Market Street, Exchange Square, New Cathedral Street, St Ann’s Square, Deansgate and King Street.

The team is on hand to guide shoppers, advising on directions, public transport and events taking place across the city.

The hosts are the eyes and ears of the BID out on the streets and make regular visits to stores. The group monitors and reports on environmental and street issues in the area.

Do say Hello as you see them around: Mark, Louise, Phil, Nicholas and Grant.
