Birmingham, England

Edgbaston Reservoir and Jewellry Quarter

Just south of Summerfield Park, in the western end of the city, is the sparkling Edgbaston Reservoir, a 70 acre nature area surrounded by woodland and marsh. The reservoir is encircled by a long paved sidewalk — perfect for a quick 1.75 mile loop. If you want to extend the route, we’ve designed a route through the Jewellry Quarter. Head up to Summerfield Park, and then follow the Old Line Canal towpath (Clissold Passage) northeast for a tour of the opulent Jewellry Quarter. Take a right on Crabtree Road, which turns into Pitsford St., and then right, heading south on Vyse St., which turns into Frederick and Newhall Hill. On your way back, hit the City Centre gardens and follow a series of paths back along the canal past the National Sea Life Center.
