Christian Reilly - Cloud 23 / Beetham Tower
Tourists! Do you wanna get high?
Your Tour Guide for this episode is the delightful Christian Reilly, who's a comedian of the musical persuasion. He's visiting Cloud 23 that sits half way up Manchester's iconic and massive Beetham Tower.
Join Christian and podcast host Vic Elizabeth Turnbull for a travel guide like no other, as they bask in possibly the best weather the city has to offer, take in some incredible breathtaking views (really good podcast material!), get serious for a little while about economics, tackle some serious vertigo vibes, get heckled by the discerning Manchester public and do some really awful impressions of the announcer guy from the X-Factor.
On the day of the recording, the Beetham Tower was the highest building in Manchester. However, as of 11th June 2018, the tower has lost the title, that it's held for over a decade. The South Tower, currently being built just down the road from Beetham, is now 0.2 metres taller, with another 33.3m to go, and is due for completion in 2019.
The Tourist Podcast is an alternative travel guide, with the funniest people on the planet; offering a no-holds barred tour of the UK's best kept secrets, backstreet dives and some unlikely destinations.
