Where you do you get your old fashioned sweet fix these days? I have just the place for you!

On the corner of Inge Street and Hurst Street you will find a wonderful Olde Shoppe to cater for your hard boiled sweets needs. Not only that, but you can spend a good few hours there exploring the restored 19th century houses next door. Otherwise known as the ‘Back to Backs’, the National Trust offers you the experience of stepping back in time and seeing how our ancestors used to live.

Take from the National Trust Website:

Carefully restored, atmospheric 19th-century courtyard of working people’s houses

Birmingham’s last surviving court of back to back housing

Story is told through the experiences of the people who lived and worked here

Covers four different periods, from 1840 to 1977

Design of each interior reflects the varied cultures, religions and professions of the families who made their homes here

Gift Aid Admission (Standard Admission prices in brackets): £5.70 (£5.15), child £2.90 (£2.60), family £14.20 (£12.90)

Advance Booking Recommended

It’s well worth a visit and a great afternoon out for the family!
