Welcome to the website of the Birmingham Heritage Forum. - Visitor attractions full of history!

This website will help you plan your visits, to experience Birmingham’s rich heritage. There are links to members’ websites. You can also download our leaflet.

Birmingham has a rich and varied heritage which reflects its transition from small country town to great industrial city.

Birmingham Heritage Forum members are organisations concerned with collections, historic sites, museums, galleries, churches, gardens and visitor services, within the Birmingham area.

The Heritage Forum was established in 1991 by Birmingham City Council. Since 1997 it has been an independent society run by a committee of volunteers.

Members are keen to share their enthusiasm for Birmingham’s heritage and to encourage interest in it, especially among children and young people who will be the guardians of our heritage in future. Many members of the group participate in Heritage Open Days in September.
