“A good place to see the narrow boats.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

The canal side near the city centre is a good place to sit and watch the narrow boats, there are a number of pubs and restaurants along the towpath.

“A wonderful stroll into town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We walked along the canal from our hotel every day into the city and on several occasions stopped for a meal or a drink along the way. Lovely restaurants and places just to drink. Beautiful barges along the way.

“Canal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is always a fascination when viewed from the walls. The industrialisation comes to live in a single view with the canal, roads and railwaytrack together at one point.
