Canal cruise in Birmingham

Admission to the Black Country Museum

 

Day 1 Saturday

Birmingham is Britain’s second city, proud of its buildings, parks, a jewellery quarter, Asian cuisine, shops, transport and much more. It also has more canals than Venice and we have an included cruise on one featuring developments like the Cube, Gas Street Basin and leafy, affluent Edgbaston. Dinner, bed & breakfast in the Best Western Appleby Park Hotel near Tamworth.

D

Day 2 Sunday

After breakfast it will take about an hour to drive to the Black Country Living Museum for a long, included visit to experience the history of the heart of industrial England. Lots of recreated buildings, demonstrations, shops and crafts, plus a Victorian schoolroom (with lessons), a coalmine, a canal tunnel, trams and trolleybuses. Arrive home in the evening.

B

B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

Celebrate a variety of the country’s past industrial achievements and discover more about how we lived in what were generally difficult times. The visits are included and we will have plenty of time for them. What you see in Birmingham and Dudley will reveal a huge amount of progress in transforming the area to 21st century living. In contrast spend the night in a country setting.
