The Basin offers a very pleasant walk along the canal side. There's a few really good food shops - don't miss the nattas from the Portuguese one! There's a good little cafe that offers take-away service and a small garden area to walk around. On heritage/fete days there is a fantastic model railway exhibition and The Coventrian canal boat which offers short trips. There is also a canoe/kayaking club. There is an iconic statue of James Brindley known as the 'father of the British canal system'.

We were in two minds about a this detour off the Oxford Canal and a night in the Coventry Canal Basin but were glad we did it. The journey from Hawkesbury Junction is not pretty but is made quite interesting with a good guidebook e.g. Pearson’s which gives details of the buildings and sites of interest on the way. Some fairly tight challenging turns and bridges! The Basin itself is well restored to how it would have looked in its working days. 48 hour and 7 day mooring are available. Despite being in a city it felt fairly secure with numerous CCTV cameras covering the area and many residential flats also facing it. An easy walk from here into the city for the cathedral, museum and shops. If you want something slightly different from the normal canal trips then it’s worth a visit! Playwrights coffee shop is open from 8:30 most days located in the basin so if you are missing a good coffee fix then there’s another reason to go!

Walked the Coventry canal from Streethay, near Lichfield to Fazeley Junction, then across aqueduct 2 into Tamworth. The Canal takes you through the villages of Whittington & Hopwas. Nice countryside and canalside properties to admire. Through picturesque Hopwas Wood and onto Fazeley Junction. Local redevelopment on the canalside here for residential purposes. It branches here for the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal. We carried on our walk along the Coventry Canal over the beautiful aqueduct 2 into Tamworth where it gives you the out of town feeling. Reccommend a visit to all.

Pretty quiet place, nice canal side walks and couple of minutes walk to town centre. Cafe by basin. Parking nearby and some lovely buildings on canal side.

Not really sure why this was on the Heritage open days, there were just a few barges moored up, nothing spectacular. There was a model railway exhibition but that didn’t interest me, don’t be put off if you like canals though.
