Visit to Back to Back

John was our guide for his very interesting tour. Well worth a visit to see how life was in 1800 and over the years how it changed.

Very interesting place to visit and to listen history of Birmingham people living, etc. Very good that these houses are kept as it used to be and have not been sold for property organisations. Very strongly advice to visit as one of the must see things in Birmingham! Enjoyed it a lot!

a surprisingly long visit with lots of extra info, whatever you ask the guides. very close to new street station and most city centre bus routes. memorable informative day that makes you view the historic city in a new light afterwards.

This museum is an excellent way of finding out what life was like for working class people in the 19th century. The guide was knowledgeably and enthusiastic about it and the tour was very interesting and lasted 2 hours. The only problem with it is that it's not signposted so was hard to find.

A must see for Birmingham! During busy seasons you will want to see if you can pre-book as this attraction is by tour only. As soon as you walk in it feels like you have stepped back in time.

Spent a wonderful hour and a half with our informative guide. The courtyard certainly gives you the feeling of what life must have been like. Our guide (Pam) was lovely and the whole tour felt very personal. Lots of very narrow, steep stairs in the properties.
