Discover Birmingham’s Canals and it’s Industrial Heritage on one of Sherborne Wharf’s luxury passenger narrowboats.

Your cruise on one of our three passenger narrowboats will depart from the International Convention Centre Quayside, opposite Brindley Place, the bustling heart of Birmingham. You will cruise along quiet stretches of the canal which first brought commercial life to Birmingham and was the start of the first industrial revolution over two hundred years ago.

The City Heritage Route covers the Oozells Street and Icknield Port loops of the original James Brindley Canal, a section of the Sir Thomas Telford’s Main Line and the area around the National Indoor Arena and the International Convention Centre before going through the Worcester Bar at Gas Street Basin and turning to disembark at the ICC.
