Birmingham Back To Backs - Review

If you want to take a trip down memory lane, don’t forget to visit the Birmingham Back to Backs. In the 18th century, it was common practice to literally build houses ‘back to back’, where two houses would share a rear wall.

Today, only a handful of them remain, and the Birmingham Back to Backs act as a museum that showcases the lives of the ordinary people who have made Birmingham the extraordinary city that it is.

In one of the most fascinating tours around the entire city, you can explore the very houses where the locals lived over 200 years ago. With the entire area being magically restored by the National Trust, you can experience exactly what it was like to be in their shoes, even sit by the same fireplace and take in the sights and sounds of 18th Century Birmingham.

The Back to Backs are quite close to the city centre, which means you have quick access to a number of restaurants and many other attractions.

The Back to Backs also have two holiday cottages on the premises, which houses two people and can be booked for a minimum of one night.

The Birmingham Back to Backs also host themed events, from craft exhibitions to historical depictions of old Birmingham.

The Birmingham Back to Backs are one of the most important historical treasures of the entire country. Take your time out to explore this blissful getaway in the heart of the city, and you will not be disappointed.

Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Birmingham itinerary 1 day.

Birmingham Back To Backs, Birmingham Reviews

  • Went there and had a tour of the back to backs. It lasted for at least an hour and a half and was well worth it as the tour guide Jeff was very knowledgeable about the history of the whole place and made everyone feel a part of the tour. If you haven't been yet I would highly recommend it.

  • A very interesting visit. The Guide was excellent as he had first hand knowledge of life in this type of house. Be aware there are lots of steep stairs and you need to book your visit. We managed just to get on one.

  • The visit was very interesting. Our guide Jeff made it an outstanding experience. He involved everybody in the group, from small children right up to the grandparents. I would recommend a tour with to everyone.

  • Excellent tour by excellent guide. See and hear how life was for many of the population of Birmingham as recently as the early 20th century. Don't forget to visit the sweet shop.

  • The tour of the Back to Backs was exceptional. I would highly recommend this tour for an experience of what life was like back in the 1800's. People lived a hard life back then, very basic living with little or no life comforts. The National Trust have done a great job setting up these exhibits. Our tour guide Peter was very informative and made the tour a delight. Well done.
