13:30-15:30 SUNDAY 16 JUNE 2024. Discovering Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter


Discovering Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter

Children 7-16 years: £8 pay on door.

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 invention and industrialisation. We see how this place adds to today's city. We look at issues being tackled in 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.
  • You guide is Jonathan Berg, local author and photographer.

A fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon among friends.
