Exploring the Birmingham Jewellery quarter ....

Daughter & I met up with a good friend, Ms M, to catch up in Birmingham.  We just don't get there often enough but it was such a treat to just catch up in a favourite place.


Ms M was keen to visit the famous Jewellery Quarter so that is where we headed. Time was on our side so we walked from the city centre, taking in the delights & catching up on each others news. 

 
We watched this boat negotiate the canal locks which run through the city centre. They did so well - I would have been all fingers & thumbs with people watching the journey & the lock process ...


Us three girlies then had a lovely time exploring the Jewellery Quarter



A Tilly ring in case my cousin so named needs a treat :)



It is a totally fascinating experience, especially as we took in the history of it at the  museum-of-the-jewellery-quarter  which tells the fabulous story of the Smith & Pepper manufacturers.

If you find yourself in Birmingham, please visit this fascinating quarter ....

Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy your comments,
