This publication coincides with the twentieth anniversary of the first opening of the Manchester Metrolink tram system, and the completion of three new lines. It is intended for the enthusiast, the resident, and the tourist visitor can use this guide to explore the Metrolink tram system, to organise a day out, or merely as a travelling companion to pass the time on an ordinary journey with descriptions of the views from the tram window and the places and attractions that may be visited from the tram stations. This book constitutes a comprehensive guide to what may be seen and visited by means of the trams, organised in a coherent and easy-to-follow format.
