About this Event

Come join me on the Gargoyles, Brylcream and Riots Tour for an immersive exploration of Deritend in Digbeth, Birmingham. We kick off our tour at The Old Crown - the oldest pub in Birmingham! From there we will make our way around this historic area which has been mentioned as far back as 1276. As we go along you'll get to experience first-hand its captivating history and architecture that have survived through centuries. You won't want to miss out on this unique opportunity so book a spot now!

We explore:

The Paragon Hotel

The Police Barracks

Stratford House

The Old Crown Pub

The Wellington Bomber that crashed into Digbeth Coach Station

The home of Brylcream

The tour is about 1/2 miles and takes approximately 1 1/2 hours, starting and finishing at the Old Crown pub in Digbeth. The terrain is mainly flat, but good mobility is required as we will be in an urban landscape. If you're interested in Birmingham, its history and architecture, this is for you.

The tour will go ahead unless the weather conditions are deemed unsafe by the met office. Suitable clothing is recommended.
