  • Good mooring, quiet, but we did expect it to be bigger. One of the arms is reserved for the local boat company and there is no mooring allowed along the ‘wharf’. We were here at end of April and it was us and one other boat. Expect it to be busy in summer months. Easy access to shops and bars using the bridge over the ring road.
  • I've been there only once, nice and quiet place. Looks like it. But needs a but of clean.
  • A very nice and cosy place in the Coventry City Centre where you can enjoy some food, fishing and local history. Occasionally, you can spot swans too!
  • I was sad to see the state of this canal. There seems to be several nice stores and some good ideas plus a number of sculptures and interesting historical pieces along the canal badin ... However it's dirty and untidy and people are just NOT taking care of it. Rubbish everywhere we ended up leaving. Can't believe they are applying for city of culture and behaving like this. Just seems to have no respect for the location or the art placed there. Wouldn't waste my time going again unless I knew things had improved.
  • It was a wonderful view and a nice walk, we went there for the Baltic shop that was incredible! There are a fair few shops there too so it's worth a look if you want something to do on a mild day.
