Route Outline

This city walk explores the northwestern sector of central Birmingham. It includes some of the city's most modern areas together with some of the city's rich industrial past. Birmingham is often quoted as having more canals than Venice although it might be argued the latter city does have a wealth of art and architecture that Birmingham lacks. Whatever your opinion Birmingham is 'going places' and this walk will explore some of its recent successes.
