Back to Backs
55-63 Hurst Street, Birmingham B5 4TE
Court 15 - Birmingham’s last remaining court of Back to Back houses. Follow a trained tour guide, where you will hear stories from over 200 years of history as you learn about the people and families who called these houses and the city of Birmingham home.
As you pass down the entry and step into the courtyard, you enter what was formerly one of over 10,000 similar courts across the city. The Back to Backs is the last remnant of a huge part of the city’s history. With nearly half the population of Birmingham living in houses like these during the 19th century, this is the story of ordinary working class people and the lives they led. Come on a tour and experience the smells of the coal fires, the voices of people who lived this first hand and the sights of long gone part of Birmingham’s heritage.
