Gas Street Basin Canal Trips

Take a canal cruise from the Gas Street Basin, and journey through the heart of old industrial Birmingham. 

In days gone by this was the hub of a thriving canal transport network and would have been alive with the sound of cargoes as diverse as chocolate, coal and glass being loaded and unloaded.

Today, the bars and restaurants of Brindleyplace cluster around this attractive basin where traditional narrowboats can be seen to form an unique experience where industrial heritage meets modern, cosmopolitan living.
