Gas Street Basin
Gas Street Basin lies in the heart of Birmingham’s canal network. In days gone by it was the hub of a thriving canal transport network and would have been alive with the sound of cargoes as diverse as chocolate crumb, coal and glass being loaded and unloaded. Today, the bars and restaurants of Brindley Place (named after James Brindley, canal engineer) surround this attractive basin where traditional narrowboats can be seen to form an unique experience where industrial heritage meets modern, cosmopolitan living.
