Birmingham Back To Backs

An atmospheric glimpse into the lives of the ordinary people who helped make Birmingham an extraordinary city.


Take a guided tour and step back in time at Birmingham’s last surviving court of back to backs; houses built literally back-to-back around a communal courtyard. Moving from the 1840s through to the 1970s, discover the lives of some of the former residents who crammed into these small houses to live and work. With fires alight in the grates, and sounds and smells from the past, experience an evocative and intimate insight into life at the Back to Backs.
