The Birmingham Canal Navigations helped to power the Industrial Revolution in Birmingham, bringing coal and raw materials into the city and transporting finished goods to other parts of the country and the ports for shipment to the rest of the world.

One of the world’s most intricate canal networks, originally totalling some 160 miles, sadly a significant

amount has been lost, but the remaining 100 miles still leave much to see and explore and is reputedly, more than Venice.

Gas Street Basin in the city centre was once the hub of the network, whilst the working boats may have disappeared it’s still bustling, only now with pleasure craft. The basin is a mixture of both old and new, restored canal buildings, vibrant restaurants, bars and cafés, entertainment venues like the International Convention Centre, National Indoor Arena and theatres, as well as just being minutes from shopping centres and New Street Station.

Other attractions and industrial marvels on the network include the Black Country Living Museum, Red House Glass Cone, the Dudley and Netherton Tunnels, Stourbridge Locks and conservation area, Wolverhampton Locks and Farmer’s Bridge Locks.

Despite much of the BCN being urban, there are quieter waters to be found meandering through more suburban and rural areas such as the lock free Wyrley and Essington Canal.
