From Canals and Victorians to Today's City
We look at the coming of the canals, Birmingham’s industrial Georgian pioneers and our Victorian heritage. We consider more recent architecture and developments that are all around us in the major city squares that we visit. The tour is based loosely on the book Positively Birmingham which can be purchased in the Library of Birmingham foyer shop at the end of the tour at the special price of £12-50 (RRP £20).
The tour lasts around 1 ¾ - 2 hours finishing back at the Library of Birmingham.
Tours may use an audio system and if so you can bring your own earphones or purchase a pair for £1 at the start of the tour. We support Sifa Fireside who work on acute and longer term homeless issues in Birmingham.
