    SOCIAL PROGRAMME

     

    8th July - Complimentary Country in the Canal boat trip and Brindley Place meal (evening)

    Does Birmingham really have more miles of canal than Venice? The exact numbers depend on where you draw the city boundaries, but the whole Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN) system adds up to 100 miles of canals.

    It is one of the most intricate canal networks in the world. The hub of the BCN is the bustling city centre junction at Gas Street Basin. Here, colourful boats and historic canal architecture sit side-by-side with vibrant modern restaurants, cafes and bars. The basin is in the heart of Birmingham’s cosmopolitan nightlife and shopping districts. The mainlines and city centre canals are busy with boaters, walkers and cyclists.

    Take a FREE 1 hour Boat Trip around Birmingham’s central canals and travel out into the greenery of England’s second city. With guide and commentary.
