  • The tour at the old Newman Brothers' factory brings to life little stories about the way of life of workers in Birmingham over a period of time. It just so happens these workers made coffins look good...  more »
  • The tour through the former production site of coffin fittings (including the Royal Family!) was wonderful. Russle was a good orator who wonderfully explained the history of small production. Many individual stories of workers at different times showed the historical development of the company. We were only three at the tour, which created a pleasant and private atmosphere. The subject is serious, but due to the pleasant care I never felt uncomfortable but rather interested. An interesting piece of history!

  • A hidden gem in the Jewellery Quarter with super nice staff and a unique experience. If you haven't been in here and live in Birmingham, book in a tour! The price is very reasonable and you'll get a truly unique insight to the industrial history of the city. Also make sure you check out the The Quarter Workshop at the same location, a standalone opportunity to become a jewellery maker for a day and make a nice pendant or even your own wedding rings! The courtyard is also perfect for reunions or wedding receptions!
  • Very interesting place to visit. Not macabre or scary as you would probably think. I didn't even know it existed. You enter the building and actually clock in, then when you leave you clock out. You get a great guided tour, and get to see each individual section of how the handles and plaques were made before the plastic ones became the usual. Very informative staff. Be aware, their are some very steep stairs to go up and down, although there is a lift if you require help.
