A really good mix of the old and the new. The best bit for me was the information about Byrne-Jones and seeing the stained-glass windows in two churches. They were absolutely spectacular and we were fortunate that the sun was shining behind them.More

Thanks. The Burne-Jones windows in St Martin' Church and St Philip's Cathedral really do demonstrate how Birmingham's most famous artist worked with William Morris to produce high end glass artistry. Do come along to our Tour No. 1 and No. 3 when you have some...More

Fun and informative tour round central Birmingham. Great for all age groups. We’ve been to Brum quite a few times but this tour gave us an insight into the history of familiar places. Good way for new visitors to orientate themselves for further exploration.
