Event description

Description

Birmingham's only ghost signs walking tour starts in the Jewellery Quarter and ends in the historic Gun Quarter just on the edge of Birmingham city centre taking around 2.5 hours.

Ghost signs are old advertising signs hand-painted directly onto a buildings brickwork. They provide an ongoing glimpse back to the past. Put simply it's - history written on the walls for us all to see and enjoy.

The walk includes a guided tour with the history of each of the ghost signs explored as well as an opportunity to take in the wider industrial heritage of the area whilst we walk through.

The walk is mainly flat and suitable for people with good mobility due to the need to walk across a large urban area. The walk is aimed at people who are interested in Birmingham's architecture, history, typography and street photography.

The walk ends by the Gunmakers Arms, 92 Bath Street where you will be able to purchase refreshments and hopefully join us for a well-deserved drink (refreshments not provided).

The walk takes place whatever the weather and flat shoes recommended. Meeting point by the Dayus Square Street sign by the bench.
