TraveLibro United Kingdom Birmingham Featured City Birmingham Canal Boatride

Birmingham Canal Boatride

At one point in time the city of Birmingham was said to have more canals than Venice. This did hold true in the mid–eighteenth century when there were 174 miles of canals, which has now been reduced considerably to 114 miles; these remain navigable even today. Taking a walk or a stroll along the canals shows the city in a different light. However, the prime attraction still remains taking a ride on the colourful canal boats, from which you can enjoy views of modern constructions along with restored industrial heritage buildings.

Edgbaston Cricket Stadium

Also known as the County Ground or Edgbaston Stadium, the Edgbaston Cricket Ground is one of the premier cricketing venues in the UK and is the second largest of its kind after the Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. Home to the Warwickshire County Cricket Club, it was established in 1882 and has a capacity to seat 25,000 spectators. Playing here is quite challenging for visiting teams as the pitch conditions are said to favour bowlers and also because of the hostile and overenthusiastic home crowds especially in the Eric Hollies Stand. All you cricket lovers, a tour here is a must.
