The tour begins in the Old Quadrangle amongst some of the University's oldest and finest building with the story of the University's origins during Manchester's industrial revolution. The tour then moves around the campus to explore how ideas and discoveries at the University shaped the modern world. Visitors explore how the University developed during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, how nuclear physics began with the splitting of the atom on campus and the foundations of modern computing were laid in the building in the building almost next door.
