Do you want to relax and forget it all in an active way? Canal walk between seemingly countless locks on the Birmingham - Worcester canal is what would probably help you.

The canal is a great place to walk. Both short or long (go to Droitwich or Worcester & train back).Some lovely pubs Queens Head along this stretch of canal and lots of boats to watch in summer of course.

Great place to walk the dog and to chat to boaters - no cafe but we took a picnic! Canal Trust members very informative. There also old lime kilns there which are being renovated.

I am not aware of such a place. But I recommend visiting Queens Head located at the canal almost exactly half way between Birmingham and Worcester.
