Neighbourhood Passes at Birmingham Back to Backs
If you live or work near the Birmingham Back to Backs, you, another adult and up to three children could visit us for free with our Neighbourhood Pass.
We want the Back to Backs to be for everyone, forever. As the last surviving example of back-to-back housing in Birmingham, they’re a part of our local history – a history we share with our neighbours currently living or working in the streets that surround us. That’s why we’d like to invite local workers and residents to come and see our shared history for themselves.

How can I claim a Neighbourhood Pass?
If you’d like to claim a pass, please email us at email@example.com. If you’re eligible, a member of the team will share how to redeem your ticket.
What do I need to bring along as proof I’m eligible?
On the day of your visit, as well as a valid ticket, we'll need to see proof of address. Please bring either your drivers licence or a utility letter, which clearly shows one of the streets listed above.
If you work on one of the streets included in our pass, we’ll still need to see proof of address; ideally, letterheaded paper from the business you work at. If you have something else that could act as proof of address, please email the team using firstname.lastname@example.org – the team will let you know if we can accept it.
I have a pass, can I turn up on the day for a tour?
No, all tours must be booked in advance – including any tours using the Neighbourhood Pass. When you receive your pass, our booking process will be explained to you; either in person or via email.
Can I bring someone else with me?
If you’re eligible for the Neighbourhood Pass, meaning that you either live or work in one of the streets listed above, you can bring another adult and up to three children with you. You’ll just need to make it clear how many are in your group at the time of booking.
Can I visit more than once using the Neighbourhood Pass?
Each ticket is only valid for one visit. Your visit must be booked before the end of 2024.
