Come and join us for a very special tour of the magnificent Great Exhibition of 1851 in the Crystal Palace with its glistening glass and iron stucture from the Black Country.

Our guide, David De Haan, will take us through the crowds in Hyde Park - some of the more than six million visitors - and into the magnificent exhibition of the newest technology, great works of art and so much more.

We may even catch a glimpse of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on one of their many visits with their family and other famous faces from the Duke of Wellington to a very grumpy Mr Charles Dickens.

So don’t delay order your ticket for this unique History West Midlands event.
