Boat through the history of a worldwide treasure

Birmingham, West Midlands

Enjoy a trip through the heart of Birmingham via its watery wonders.

Did you know Birmingham has more canals than Venice? And what's more, it's studded with gorgeous scenery and hidden nooks and crannies you'd only see by hopping aboard one of the city's boat tours. Right in the centre of it all is Sherborne Wharf, situated on Birmingham's historic 'Main Line' route and a reminder of the city's Victorian might.

The wharf has four boats to suit any water bound taste, from quieter jaunts around historic places to party boats. Either way, you'll poodle past sites from all of Birmingham's rich history, taking in landmarks such as the National Indoor Arena and Brindleyplace to the 19th century charm of Gas Street Basin.
