My wife and I took my parents for a father's day trip along the canal courtesy of the Dudley canal trust and it was a simply brilliant afternoon. My dad is in a wheelchair but that was not a problem as they have a boat with a lift for wheelchair users. Our trip also included a cream tea which we... More

Thanks so much for your review. We're really glad that you enjoyed your boat trip and your cream tea. You're correct- once our new visitor centre opens in September, access from the car park to the towpath will be much easier! Hope to see you again soon for another trip! More

We had a cream tea and canal trip courtesy of a family gift voucher. The cream tea was excellent, soft fresh scones and generous butter,cream and jam. The canal trip unexpectedly educational as well as pleasant with a cheerful informative boatman. Afterwards for an entrance fee there was the option of going around the Black Country Museum.

In my never ending search for things to do with my grandchildren, bearing in mind that in this day and age it gets harder to please the young darlins. We came across the Dudley Canal Trust, so we embark on yet another short adventure. Well I can only say it is worth the money and the trip, our youngest was... More

Great morning on the canal, all staff are friendly and very knowledgeable, great fun watching people leggin the boat. Our guide was Brill, very funny but knew his stuff and we learnt a great deal. Would recommend it for every age well worth the money

Absolutely Brilliant afternoon! All the staff were lovely and our tour guide gave an informative, fun and easy to understand commentary throughout the whole tour that lasted approximately an hour. On top of this it was excellent value for money and I will return (your ticket is valid for a year of unlimited boat rides - what a bargain)!

We visited off the cuff..... We enjoyed the visit, the first video and the skippers commentary were very informative and I learnt a lot about the history of the canals. But some things were just surreal....... ....... We are still laughing about the 'light show' in the singing cave. The film was like something from Windows media player circa 1995,... More
