Gas Street Basin to Bournville (Linear Canal walk) West Mids.
Easy short linear canal walk from Birmingham New Street train station to Bournville train station with the option of coffee and cake in a cosy Bournville independent cafe (Kafenion) at the end. You will be amazed at the amount of wildlife you will see and how green it gets so close to the centre. The walk goes past the University and ends in the picturesque village of Bournville which is testament to the patriarchal nature of the Cadbury family. The group will return by train but it would be possible to walk back.
Entirely on canal tow paths / roads so trainers will be fine. The walk is flat.
