Regenerated major industrial canal system. Canal boat trips..fair price adjacent to Birmingham Symphony Hall, Rep theatre and Mew Alax theatre. Attached to Brindley Place excellent restaurants near major hotel chains Late night area is club land worth a visit especially if you are interested even briefly in industrial past

Ideal for a wander along the canal side. Many choices of bars and restaurants to sit, relax and watch the world go by. Very clean and an area I would return to

Found this delightful place and took a canal trip, well worth the £8 for an hours cruise along the canals, very informative and a little glass of wine on board only £3. Really enjoyed hearing all about past times on the canals.

We visited this area of Birmingham to take a trip on a canal barge with our family. You can see as much by taking a walk along side the canal and across the many bridges in this area.

Not the best time to explore but got a a good flavour of a place to go. With the present upheaval of the City Centre the walk there was a bit like Beiruit.

Well worth a visit. A lot of restaurants in this area. They were all full when we tried them on Saturday night on spec so booking is essential
