What we offer

Sherborne Wharf Marina is situated in the heart of Birmingham. It is located on the Oozles Street loop on James Brindley’s original old ‘Main Line’ canal. Birmingham boasts more canals than Venice!  It is in the heart of the canal system in England and therefore  Sherborne Wharf offers the ‘adventurous boater’ extensive cruising routes for school trips and educational groups.

What makes us a great choice?

Our boats offer a clean, warm and insured environment for schools. We invite party leaders to visit and inspect the on board facilities. Our staff are fully trained, qualified and enthusiastic to show pupils the wonders of the local waterways. We have run our school trips for several years, and have often liaised with the schools liaison officer at the ‘National Sealife Centre’. Our trips are ideal for all ages, with out tailor-made commentary and history of the canals .

Usually we sail from the Quayside at the International Convention Centre and a one hour cruise will take you around the Oozells Street loop, up the main line, round the Icknield Port loop, back down the main line past the National Indoor Arena, through the I.C.C., under Broad Street, into Gas Street Basin, turn at Salvage Turn and then back to the I.C.C. and Brindley Place. This trip shows Birmingham ‘ancient and modern’ and how the canals made the city prosperous.
