Birmingham Tours Hidden Gems Bus Tour




In 2012 as part of our secret tours collection we invite you to experience `Hidden Gems of the City'. Start the day with a themed guided tour linking highlights of the city with the life of Cardinal Newman or August Welby Northmore Pugin on your own coach, covered double decker or Big Brum Open Top Buz. Arriving at St Mary's Convent - home to the Sisters of Mercy in time for refreshments we then have a guided tour of this little known Pugin masterpiece - an oasis in the heart of the city. A simple lunch in the refectory is included in the price. In the afternoon we continue to the Oratory - a celebration to Cardinal Newman for a guided tour of the highlights of this superb Baroque style building.
