Jewellery Quarter Tours

“We arranged a Jewellery Quarter Tour with Anna as part of our business birthday celebrations.  We needed quite a bespoke tour as we only had a limited amount of time available, and Anna was very flexible and accommodating, using her wealth of JQ knowledge and contacts to provide us with the perfect afternoon.

On the day of the tour, Andy was enthusiastic from the off and imparted some fascinating nuggets of Jewellery Quarter history about all the locations we visited or passed along the way. The craftsmen that we met were a real inspiration, dedicated to their art and passionate about ensuring the traditional ways of working don’t get lost in the passing of time.

Our tour ended with a fantastic afternoon tea at The Hive Bakery, once again arranged by Anna, where the sandwiches and scones were plenty and tasty.  We enjoyed it so much that we are returning to The Hive for our next meeting.  

If you are looking to do something a little bit different from either a business or personal perspective, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anna and Andy. It was a pleasure to deal with them from start to finish.”.

Thank you very much for all that you both did to make our visit last week to the Jewellery Quarter such a resounding success. Anna, all your detailed planning really paid off. I have had a number of e mails and comments from people about how much they enjoyed the day and how well they thought you had organised it.”
