Discovering Birmingham: A Walk and More


Discovering Birmingham; A Walk and More

Understand how Birmingham developed and see that many of today’s ways of working have deep roots in our past. In particular we explore: • Earlier times – medieval origins • From Georgian entrepreneurs to Victorian idealists • Jewellery Quarter • Canal city • An artistic side • Developing for the future. This walk starts and ends at the Library of Birmingham in Centenary Square. Content is loosely based on the new tourist guide Discovering Birmingham. A copy of the guide book is included in the ticket price (book normally £5). Tours may use an audio system and if so you can bring your own earphones or purchase a new pair for £1 at the start of the tour which you keep at the end.

This 1 3/4 hour walking tour gives a great introduction to the city and will be of interest equally to local people and visitors. Book adult tickets (£10-60) from the Positively Birmingham website with child tickets (£5; 6-16 years) payable at the tour start.

We support Sifa Fireside who work on acute and longer term homeless issues in Birmingham with at least 10% of all sales going to their work. Donations are clearly stated on our website.
