A canal enthusiast's must-visit.
Aug 2020
It's always been historic, this near-mythical thing called Gas Street Basin. Back in the 1970s it was quite run down and very trad in fact and feel, so much so that emerging into Broad Street was a culture shock.
Now it's tidied up, well lit, safe, well visited. there are very modern buildings contrasting with the old. Narrowboats abound. It has a charm and there's history still there.

One of the most beautiful area's of Birmingham is the Gas Street Basin ,a series of canal systems with superb looking buildings either side of the canals both old and new ,many of the Gas Street Basin buildings have been converted into pubs,bars and restaurants, we visited the Canal House ,a great restaurant/ pub that looks amazing, its nice seeing the barges plying their trade along the canal system, its such a lively, vibrant area,very popular, I loved walking around this area ,took some really good photos of Gas Street Basin, most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area.

great revitalized area

Gratefully, Birmingham has taken a stance of rejuvenating this otherwise seedy part of town into a thriving entertainment area. Lover it with all it's bars and restaurants and of course the boat traffic. Full marks!!!!

This is a great place if you fancy a nice walk along the canals, there are plenty of bars and restaurants along the way, and in summer there are boat trips which i can thoroughly recommend. There is also the sea life centre for families as a added bonus, well worth visiting.

Great walk and gives the vibe of old Birmingham.

We wanted to get away from the city and took the children for a walk along the canal. It gives the good feel of old Birmingham, along with some good walks. The weather was nice and it was pretty peaceful to cm get out of the city for awhile.

Canals

Gas street Basin is one stopping point if you are exporting the Birmingham canals which there are several easily accessible points around the city, its part of the history of Birmingham still in operation and if your lucky you will spot a traveller.

industrial but modern

It's a place between time, with a mix of old/modern buildings and the boats that bring a nice feeling.
Worth having a walk along the canals. Even late by night, we (two girls) didn't feel insecure.
