We cruised around this wharf admiring the redevelopment along the canal. We spent about half an hour and enjoyed every minute

We thoroughly enjoyed an hour's trip aroind the canal, the 2 ladies were super kind and helpful. It was a really pleasant trip and one we would recommend. Our toddler really enjoyed it.

Went on a pleasant boat trip from here on a Saturday afternoon. Really relaxing 40 minute cruise around some of the canal basins.

We had an unexpected layover in Birmingham and someone suggested visiting the canals. Easy walk from Central Station. Good clear commentary. Refreshments available on board. Glad we did that rather than wander around yet another shopping mall!

Worth doing if you would like a relaxing hours trip along the canal( even in Feb - although wrap up warm as quite chilly!) could do with cushions on the seats or a supply of blankets. Friendly welcome.

The concept is great, slowing meandering along old canals looking at Birmingham from a very different view. Unfortunately, the piped commentary is a cross between 'Play School' and a parody of 'Horrible Histories'. More work needed!

An hours cruise around the canals of Birmingham helped put a lot of local history into place. Our host was a very friendly woman and we had a good chat with her before getting on the boat. We found the trip interesting with explanations of...More
