Riverside fun
A day on the water is certainly a more fun way to spend a few hours than walking. Take advantage of the canals which run through the city centre and indulge in Away 2 Canal – the heated canal experience, which is open for business every day. They have catering facilities and on board toilets, so you're enjoying a ride in comfort.

Brindley Place, canals,
All aboard


Indulge in this more fun way to travel on weekends and you can enjoy the fully licensed bar, or take your little ones along and take in the greenery in the surrounding countryside, along with commentary from the experienced boat owners.

The Country in the City canal tour costs £6.00 for adults and £3.00 for children. The price includes an hour boat trip around Birmingham's Central Canals and travel out into the Greenery of the nearby countryside.

The canal trips operate from October to Easter every weekend, so it's perfect way to spend time with your loved ones after a long week in the office. Canal Trips depart from The Waters Edge, Brindleyplace, opposite the ICC.

Brindley Place, canals,
Picturesque moments


If you're looking for a more special way to spend your weekend, there really is no better, or cooler way to travel. It's old school, it's calm, and travelling via canal is certainly more relaxing than a modern convenience like car, or plane.
