Canals in and around Birmingham - enjoy them!

Birmingham is often referred to as being at the heart of Britain’s canal network. With over 100 miles of canals to explore, it’s easy to see why so take our feature and enjoy!

Whether you walk, run, bike or simply sit back and relax, the more time you spend by water the happier and healthier you feel.
