Book Tickets Online


When the proprietors of the Smith & Pepper jewellery manufacturing firm retired in 1981 they simply ceased trading and locked the door, unaware they would be leaving a time capsule for future generations. Today the factory is a remarkable museum, which tells the story of the Jewellery Quarter and Birmingham's renowned jewellery and metalworking heritage. Explore this extraordinary time capsule on a lively guided tour. Watch live demonstrations at the jewellers' bench of the traditional skills of this fine trade, and discover what it was like to work here.
