Does Birmingham really have more miles of canal than Venice? The exact numbers depend on where you draw the city boundaries, but the whole Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN) system adds up to 100 miles of canals.

Here at B-ROW we love the canals and spend ALOT of time on them. These hidden corridors of green are a million miles away from the present day. We use them to canoe, kayak and paddleboard on and we are looking for small rowing boats to use on them too!!

There are so many access points and so much history that a trip is never dull even for the most disengaged teenager.
