WE DON’T HAVE TO VENTURE ABROAD THIS YEAR TO ENJOY THE DELIGHTS OF A TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS MARKET - OUR OWN CITY OF BIRMINGHAM IS TWINNED WITH FRANKFURT AND HOSTS THE LARGEST AUTHENTIC GERMAN CHRISTMAS MARKET OUTSIDE OF GERMANY OR AUSTRIA.

---

DESCRIPTION

Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter is also a national treasure. It contains the best and most extensive surviving group of Victorian buildings devoted to the manufacture of jewellery in Europe, and is a place of unique character.

How about we combine the two for a memorable day trip and possibly fill our shopping bags?

Take a train from Euston and arrive at Birmingham New Street station late morning for a guided walking tour with a blue badge guide who will lead us around the historic Jewellery Quarter, pointing out ‘gems’ along the way.

After a lunch break in a local hostelry we will have an opportunity to browse the independent shops and take in the traditional Christmas Market that straddles the main town square. It has a large range of traditional goods and gifts and a selection of tempting food and drink.

We could end the day on pretzels, bratwursts, and roasted chestnuts washed down with gluhwein or tasty hot chocolate!

Cost £25 per person – includes tour, guides & MeetUp fees
(lunch, transport & personal expenses are not included)

09.50 from Euston arriving in Birmingham at 11.25
* this train is fixed as our walking tour will start from the station at 11.30

Departure 18.10 – arriving Euston 19.33
This is flexible as the market is very near to the station and you are free to leave as you wish after 16.00

I will confirm our exact meeting point.

Places are limited to 12 people
