One of the many Birmingham Canals, the Tame Valley Canal is your passage to another world in a busy city.
The secret garden of the canal world, the secluded Tame Valley Canal canal is teaming with wildlife. Flanked by towering embankments and deep cuttings, it provides you with a very mystical feeling as you paddle through. Measuring just over 8 miles long and with 13 locks, paddle through woodland, parkland, marshland and fields. It’s a great paddle for anyone looking for an urban escape. Or those looking for a scenic, short paddle.
Wildlife lovers will love this canal for a peaceful paddle, not just for the secluded nature of the canal but because it’s apparently one of the best places in the West Midlands to spot a variety of common and rare birds!
