Jewellery Quarter Heritage Walk
Join us for a lively walk around the historic Jewellery Quarter and learn interesting facts about the history of this renowned area, its buildings and businesses.
The heritage walks will focus on the jewellery trade but also encompass many other aspects of the Jewellery Quarter’s rich history.
Starting on Newhall Street in the Jewellery Quarter, visitors can go on a journey back in time along streets drenched in history to allow them to discover the stories of those who defined the area. They can learn more about famous Egyptologist Colonel Vyse, whose estate formed a large part of the area as it is known today, as well as internationally-heralded companies that made fine jewellery for royalty and a host of celebrities including Jenson Button, Eric Clapton and Sophia Loren.
