HoB Tour

This guided walking tour starts in Digbeth in the city centre. It provides an opportunity to visit four local charities and community groups in Sparkbrook and Small Heath areas of the city and to find out about local history. You will learn about the work these charities do within their local communities. You will also meet with local people to hear their personal stories that reflect the history and cultural diversity of the city over the last 100 years.
The tour ends on Coventry Road in Small Heath where you can explore cafes and restaurants serving a wide variety of food. There are also many small retail outlets to visit.
The tour takes 3 hours with a total walking time between community venues of around one hour. There is a frequent bus service that can take you back to the city centre in around 10 minutes.
