This special New Year's Eve Tour will be led by Jonathan Berg, author of the book Positively Birmingham. A signed copy of the book will be included at the end of the tour (one per coffee table).
We consider the importance of the canals to the industrial revolution in Georgian times and the huge changes made by the Victorians. We experience the modern city and current projects all around us are explained.
Our guides are experienced and knowledgeable local people and great fun to spend time with!
