A day in Manchester with EastPak

It's not often you get to treat your city like you're a tourist, so I packed an overnight bag and headed into town.

By Lee Isherwood | November 25th '14

I was recently asked by Eastpak to do “24 hours in Manchester” as part of their Made.For city guide series with Kev from the EastPak team to show him what’s up, frankly it was my pleasure. It’s not often you get to treat your city like you’re a tourist, so I packed an overnight bag and headed into town.

I got my mate Jody Hartley involved who documented the lot with the shots below. This was our 24 hours, please feel free to add in the comments anything you would have squeezed in.
