The best way to get around is on foot - you see it all. From the industrial heritage the city is renowned for to the old haunts of the infamous Peaky Blinders, you can enjoy an edutaining walking tour of Birmingham whilst you stay in the second city.
If the weather is good, there’s no better way to see Birmingham than on foot. Luckily, there are some excellent guided walking tours, from Positively Birmingham’s Edward Burne-Jones pre-Raphaelite art tour, to Birmingham Heritage Walking Tours’ Lost Pubs of The Jewellery Quarter tour. Adventurous types can just go and wander around on their own – if you get lost, just ask a friendly Brummie.
Nowadays, you can't mention Birmingham without talking about the hit TV show Peaky Blinders which returned for its fifth season in 2019. Now you can walk the very same streets the real Peaky Blinders did thanks to Brum Tours. Follow in the footsteps of Birmingham’s baddest Victorian gang with a Peaky Tour in Digbeth, visit the Lock-up at Steelhouse Lane police station where some of the gang was incarcerated or see the TV show sets at the Black Country Museum.
