If you like canals this is a great place for walking. Lots to see, old boats, pubs, cafes, historical buildings, even fish in the water. You can also hire a boat and go further as the canals go for many miles.

We were walking back from a meal. Early afternoon It was very interesting looking at the barges in the water. Information on the walls on the history. There was some very old pubs where you could have a drink and people watch.

Very nice, almost hidden area of Birmingham with lots of restaurants in the area. We will come back to explore this area more when we are next in Birmingham.

Looks like a film scene at night. Perfect to have a walk, get a boat ride or visit the many pubs in this area.
