The Old Crown is a striking building rich in history and character and is one of a few remaining examples of Birmingham s medieval past. It has seen off Civil War soldiers Victorian town planners and German bombs! The building is a Grade II listed building and was built circa 1368. It dates from the Tudor period and was one of Birmingham s very first school buildings. In 1575 The Old Crown received a very famous visitor...Queen Elizabeth I rested here on her way home after attending a party at Kenilworth Castle. During the English Civil War the Old Crown was the last standing building to hold out against the infamous Prince Rupert and his army...the event subsequently labelled the Birmingham Butcheries . Over the years town planners wanted to demolish the building but it was saved many times by Joshua Toulmin Smith. It is believed that every room has a tale to tell and it is said that the Old Crown is haunted by not one but two ghosts!
