Visit the Coffin Works for FREE on Heritage Open Day!
The shelves and workbenches at Newman Brothers are full of original stock and tools of the trade. With the original machinery working again, you can truly experience how this old Jewellery Quarter firm once operated on a day-to-day basis, producing some of the world’s finest coffin furniture, including the fittings for the funerals of Churchill, Chamberlain and the Queen Mother.
Travel back in time a few decades to experience how Newman Brothers operated during its heyday. You will enter a time capsule where the music of the 60s is piped into the building, mingled with the industrial sounds of a working factory.
Max 15 people per tour/session. There is always an extremely high demand for tours on Heritage Open day, we run tours every 30 minutes rather than hourly to help with this, but places are limited to 15 per tour due to the nature of the site. Pre-booking as far in advance as possible is strongly advised because tours are always fully booked on the day. Book now via Eventbrite to secure your place!
