You’re almost ready to begin your journey…
The walk starts on Cross Street, outside the Royal Exchange Theatre.
We recommend you follow our tips below for the best experience. You are welcome to take part as many times as you choose. The walk will be available until November.
We hope you have a wonderful walk.
You’re ready to go!
You will need headphones and your smartphone. Keep your GPS and wifi enabled. Follow the instructions given by the narrator. The route is circular and will start and end at the theatre, highlighted orange on the map. When you start the walk, you will see your current position as a blue dot on the map.
All walks are outdoors, so wear comfy shoes and suitable clothes for the weather. Download the app and the walk before you set off, while connected to wifi. If the app asks you about location settings, select ‘allowed all the time’ to improve GPS. Keep your wifi on during the walk as this will strengthen the GPS location, without using any data. If the sound disappears, just check on your map to find your route again.
The walk is available from 9am – 8pm Monday – Saturday and 9am – 6pm on Sundays. The walk will last around 45 minutes (depending on your speed) with some inclines, but no steps. The walk will wait for you and can be enjoyed at your own pace. As this is an audio experience, D/deaf audiences can choose to use the in-app captions. Visually impaired audiences may need a walking companion for safety with crossing roads. Walk This Play experiences are suitable for ages 12+
