Although not an epic walk, it is nice to wander through for a short walk. There are some pubs on route which looked nice, and it has links to other Birmingham features. Worth a walk.

Make sure you stop at Canalside for a meal or afternoon tea. Charming and sits right between from Gas Street Basin and The Mailbox.
