Description

On the gargoyles, brylcream, and riots tour, we explore the historic Deritend area of Digbeth, Birmingham.

Starting at The oldest pub in Birmingham, The Old Crown in Digbeth. we make our way around Deritend. Deritend was first mentioned in 1276 and is brimming with fascinating history and architecture.

We explore:

The Paragon Hotel

The Police Barracks

Stratford House

The Murphy riots of 1867

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.
