So much to see around Gas Street Basin especially if you enjoy local history. There isn't too much evidence of what it used to look like because there is a limited amount of plaques and old photos. A lot of the old buildings have disappeared...More

We had a lovely walk along the canal, it has been sympathetically repurposed, and the whole area was a joy to walk round. The location maps proved very useful

I have been this place couple of times in autumn and spring with my friends. Nice place to stroll in the evening or late night after dinner.

Went into the Basin on a canal narrowboat. It is an amazing development in the heart of the City with lots of different areas to explore and a great choice of eating and drinking establishments.

Having walked through the canal basin dozens of times it always seems disappointing to see closed up buildings as you walk along the towpath to the Arena. The old nightclub Bobby Browns has been closed since 2003. The opening of the Canal House that was...More
