Art Deco Walk
The walk is led by Art Historian Christiane Worth & contributing writer to Brutiful Birmingham John Bell to explore the often overlooked gems of the Art Deco in Birmingham. Both are passionate about the architectural heritage of the much maligned city.
Hidden amid the architectural exuberance of 19th century Birmingham and the decorative triumphs of the Arts and Craft movement, stand many fine Art Deco buildings of the 1920s and 30s. Their simplicity of style and elegance must have seemed revolutionary at the time.
Our walk takes us through the centre of the city to discover an architectural style which reflects the new modern age of the inter-war years.
The walk will take about 1.5 hours.
