What's Magical, Full of Books and looks like Hogwarts?

Your Tour Guide for this episode is the brilliant award-winning writer, stand-up comedian and Britain's Got Talent finalist - Daliso Chaponda.

Join Daliso and your host Vic Elizabeth Turnbull for a travel guide like no other, as they take you on a trip to the magical, Hogwarts-esq John Rylands Library; one of Manchester's best kept secrets. Discover the grand gesture behind this magnificent building, what goes on in the basement, far below the streets of Manchester and where that booky smell really comes from. The tour also includes selling out, 250,000 books, ghostly tales, the power of a golden buzzer and insider tips on becoming a top writer and comedian - direct from this hilarious horse's mouth.

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.
