More Information about JW Evans

Pre-booking is essential for JW Evans. Once you choose your arrival slot, you'll receive your booking confirmation by email. Just bring this with you on the day you visit, either on your mobile device or as a print out. The email will contain a barcode that our team will scan when you arrive. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your booked time. The minimum age for the tours is 16 years and unfortunately the tours are not suitable for those with poor mobility, due to the uneven floors, narrow walkways, and steep stairs across the building.

Established in 1881, J. W. Evans is one of the most complete surviving historic factories in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter. To walk into the factory today is to enter a lost industrial world. Behind the frontage of four terraced houses, the workshops retain their original drop stamps and fly presses. They are packed with thousands of dies for the manufacture of silverware, as well as the whole of the working equipment, stock and records of the business. Tours of J. W. Evans are available on a set number of days. For tours please arrive at least 10 minutes before your booked tour time
