    This tour is different. We get under the 'skin' of the city. We understand how the Jewellery Quarter developed from a country estate to a centre of amazing inventions and industrialisation. We see how this amazing place adds to today's city.

    • Take the 'secret canal' to the Jewellery Quarter and understand  industries from artisan jewellers to giant enterprises who dominated the world.
    • See where the city is heading into the future
    • Black Lives Matter - appreciate Birmingham's role in and reliance on the 17th and 18th century slave trade.

    A fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
