Birmingham Self-Guided City Walk

Birmingham, founded in the 7th century, is the UK’s second-largest city, with a population of 1.2 million.

The city has many surprises in store, with delightful canal-side cafes, wonderful architecture, award-winning sculptures, excellent shopping, and a vibrant city centre.

Birmingham led the 18th-century Industrial Revolution and became known as the City of a Thousand Trades because of the wide variety of companies based here.

Surprisingly, Birmingham has 35 miles of canals compared with 26 in Venice. More cubic metres of water flow through Birmingham’s canals than any other city in the world.

Walk Distance 4.0 km / 2.5 miles, mostly flat.
