Black Country Living Museum
A thought-provoking experience with 300 years of history & heritage in the Black Country. Explore the largest open-air museum in the UK in 26 acres of land.
Wonderful museum. Featured regularly in Peaky Blinders and the pub was in the recent Laural and Hardy film. Great for all the family and one of my favourites.

“Carefully restored, atmospheric 19th-century courtyard of working people's houses. An atmospheric glimpse into the lives of the ordinary people who helped make Birmingham an extraordinary city. Visits to the Birmingham Back to Backs are by guided tours only. Booking prior to visit is essential”
“The Cathedral of Saint Paul is an elegant building designed in 1893 by the noted architect Adolphus Druiding who very successfully combined Neo-Gothic Victorian lines with eclectic detailing, leading to a sense of grandeur through the proportion of the sanctuary and its intricate decoration.”
