  • This is a fascinating area to visit. It's steeped in the history of the Industrial Revolution. An unexpected gem with plenty to see.  more »
  • Took a walk along the canals. Go to the Canal in the middle of the city of Birmingham, but during the industrial revolution have slipped like. Although the old warehouses transformed into restaurants and cafes, atmosphere, leaving as a modern waterfront people collection were made in, is impressed in many ways. British people who commute to work by walking or canal, the Canal is part of life is also amazing. I look to the tourist attractions.
