Visit Back To Backs Birmingham

Going for a cup of tea at The Green Room Cafe Bar after the tour. Go and sit down and the two tours can meet there afterwards. I will be standing by the Hippodrome opposide the sweet shop from 2.15. Come and see me, there are two tours at 2.30 and 2.45.

Visit the Back to Backs in the centre of Birmingham.

An atmospheric glimpse into the lives of the ordinary people who helped make Birmingham an extraordinary city.

On a fascinating guided tour, step back in time at Birmingham's last surviving court of back to backs; houses built literally back-to-back around a communal courtyard.

Moving from the 1840s through to the 1970s, discover the lives of some of the former residents who crammed into these small houses to live and work. With fires alight in the grates, and sounds and smells from the past, experience an evocative and intimate insight into life at the Back to Backs.

Free for National Trust Members. Please let me know so I can call with numbers. People of all ages welcome.
