The Jewellery Quarter is within walking distance of Birmingham city centre. For over 200 years jewellery manufacturers have operated from this area of the city. The area is now a tourist attraction in its own right.
As you walk through the side streets many of the traditional craftsmen's workshops will look much the same as they did in the nineteenth century. However, this is not a museum. This is a living and thriving business community.
The Jewellers Arms is about as local as you can get. It's the kind of place where everyone stops talking as you enter. You can half expect someone to lean forward in full League of Gentleman character, rub their hands and announce "Your not from around these parts are you".
If you are interested in taking a tour round a real working example of jewellery in the making and the history of the jewellery quarter you might like to take a look at the Discovery Centre
