About Birmingham

The Birmingham and Worcester Canal is part of a labyrinth of waterways weaving through the region carrying canoes and cruisers. Wherever you are on the boat, fore or aft, you will get a superb view of Britain’s second largest city. The canal's towpath is also popular with walkers and in Bourneville you'll find the Cadbury's factory and irresistible chocolate shop! 

Edgbaston Reservoir

This 70 acre site on the western side of Birmingham city centre is easily accessible for anyone who wants to get involved in sailing, rowing, windsurfing, canoeing or kayaking.
