Silver, gold & a red palace walking tour – Constitution Hill, Birmingham
Constitution Hill in Birmingham has a rich history. We discover a red palace with links to downhill skiing! An art-deco factory responsible for coins used all over the world. A silver company whose products date back the Birmingham earliest silver trade. A pub that organised a trip to the Costa-del-sol for its patrons, and a bull that was taken into protective custody by the Birmingham militia. Starting near Snow Hill railway station at one of Birmingham’s liveliest pubs The Wolf and ending at the Gunmakers Arms. The walk takes approximately 1 1/2 hours and is mainly flat in an urban environment. Dogs are welcome. We end the walk with the option of a social drink.
