The sometimes grizzly lives of working class families of times gone by.
Oct 2021
Difficult to find... No street signs and our walking SAT NAV was confused! The houses are actually on a road past take-aways and cafes, very close to China Town and a short walk from 'The Bull Ring'. On eventually arriving we received a full guided tour of three houses of different periods and a myriad of stories about the actual families who had lived there since the 1800s. Our tour guide was passionate and very knowledgeable about the houses that he had researched in great detail. A highly recommended insight into the lives of working class people in times gone by.

We visited here as a family of three on a Saturday afternoon. We were met by very friendly staff, who took our booking reference and introduced us to our guide. The tour itself was fascinating, and it was an eye opener to see how people lived back then. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed the tour, and the guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. We would definitely recommend.

Back to Back to Backs!

Fab way to spend a Sunday afternoon! As a returning member I thoroughly enjoyed my visit just as much (if not more) than my previous experience thanks to our fab tour guide John. Both tours (one pre covid) were absolutely brill, with so much to see and learn about, it's a real eye opener to see how people lived..the tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and charismatic and bring the Back to Backs experience to life, they are very good at what they do..a credit to the NT. The only thing I should mention is that there are a couple of steep staircases which could potentially be a problem for some..but Its definitely worth a visit folks!!

Easy to book online and although raining, we had a lovely visit here. Tour guide was wonderful-knowledgeable and informative. So interesting looking round all the houses from different periods and credit to all involved in their restoration and upkeep.

Our tour guide John brought this piece of Birmingham's history to life and made it a fantastic afternoon. We highly recommend a visit and will definitely be back (especially if John gets the toast on at night!)

Birmingham city's last surviving court of back-to-back house experience is truly exceptional
Aug 2021
What an amazing experience we had yesterday! The tour revealed the history of the working classes of the 19th century and much of the 20th century. The buildings were true representation of the preserved examples of the thousands of similar houses that were built around shared courtyards, for the rapidly increasing population of Britain's expanding industrial towns. We can't express our gratitude to our tour guide John, he and the staff were truly brilliant. I can't recommend enough to go, we will definitely be back once the Covid restrictions allow us to explore upstairs!
