This part of Birmingham has one of the most nostalgic moments that I have experienced since I was a teenager. This area has got a vibrant history that goes hundreds of years. It might be worth taking a boat trip and enjoy the scenery.

This is part of the canal system in the Broad Street area, it charming area to walk around. There lots of bars and restaurants in the area and also the designer shops in The Mailbox Shopping Centre. An enjoyable area for mooching around.

A nice stroll with the canal basin, pubs and restaurants at one end and the mailbox shopping centre/bars at the other. Looks like some good outdoor seating for the summer.
