Starting in Birmingham's historic Jewellery Quarter we explore Birmingham through some of its historically and architecturally important pubs. Stopping for a drink here and there along the way! We travel through the heart of the city ending in Digbeth at the Old Crown. Probably the oldest pub in Birmingham. The tour is a walk of about 1 1/2 miles and takes approximately 2 hours. The terrain is mainly flat but good mobility is required as we will be in an urban landscape.
