You’ve probably been to the Baths, but have you been on one of our fascinating history tours, or down into the underground tunnels yet?
Well, this year we are running a monthly Sunday afternoon heritage tour where you’ll get to see behind the scenes; going up on the balcony and down into the Deep End of the pool and along the tunnels to the original well. If you don’t fancy the ‘hard hat’ tunnel experience, there is plenty to hear about, learn and enjoy on the tour above ground.
Join us for a fascinating journey into the history of Stirchley’s most iconic historic building from 1903 to present day. Pre-booking is essential. £3 per person. Please book before the Friday of that Sunday’s tour date. Everyone welcome, but please note, only children aged 6+ can go down into the tunnels for safety reasons.
Please wear sensible shoes for the tunnels and probably best not to wear your Sunday best as the tunnels are dirty and dusty!
Tour starts 2pm. Please arrive five minutes early. The tour will be finished by 3.30pm.
All proceeds will be used to support Stirchley History Group. Please bring exact money if possible or write a cheque for £3 to Stirchley History Group.
Tour dates for 2017 are:
- Sunday 19 Mar
- Sunday 23 Apr
- Sunday 21 May
- Sunday 18 Jun
- Sunday 23 Jul
- Sunday 20 Aug
- Sunday 17 Sep

Please book through email: firstname.lastname@example.org , telephone: 0121 464 9072 or through twitter @StirchleyBaths or facebook/StirchleyBaths
Hope you can join us!
Can these tours be booked on any other day? I belong to a ladies group and we like to visit local places of interest, we would love to do the tour but find Sundays difficult for public transport. There would be a group of us , numbers not confirmed until we have a date but would be happy to pay in advance.
Hi Sue, sorry for the delay. Yes, we can arrange a group tour by appointment. Mondays are best when there is less room hire so you can see more! Please get in touch with me via email@example.com and i’ll check availability with our volunteer guides. The price is £3 for the tour. There is also a cafe on site.
Best wishes, Suzanne Carter
