The Right to Vote:

Birmingham Heritage Trails

As part of The Right to Vote Project, run by Birmingham Archives & Heritage in partnership with the Parliamentary Archives and Parliamentary Outreach, an illustrated guide to two trails has been produced and is available here for you to download and print your own copy. It includes a walking trail of the city centre and also highlights other sites in and around Birmingham that are linked to sites of activism and the campaign for the right to vote.

The city walking trail will take about an hour and a half if you visit all the sites, but it can be shortened easily by missing out the sites in the Bull Ring and Digbeth. The tour of ‘Right to Vote Sites in and around Birmingham’ will require a car or public transport.
