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

This attraction is a must for anyone who wishes to learn any thing about our industrial heritage. Take children and grandchildren and they will learn so much about the enterprise and hardship of our industrial past. The use and invention of canals was a fantastic development in our industrial heritage. The commentary we heard was informed , witty and very... More

Booked a 2 hour trip to the singing cave for my husband, me and my parents after seeing it in "Barging round Britain with John Sergeant". You do need to book for this your do don't just turn up- 45 minute trips can be accommodated daily. I am sure the tourists must have increased on the back of this programme... More

Went with my partner as part of our day at the Black Country living museum as we both remembered going on the canal boats in our earlier years on school trips! Was a lovely informative 45 minutes well worth the fee and to know we were helping the canal trust with their work was even better. Mark the tour guide... More

Great attraction and very well priced, was surprised how far we went into the tunnels but was well worth the money and the time . Our guide / driver was very knowledgable but not boring at all. Carbs wait to go back

Having not been on the canals for many years being in Dudley gave us the opportunity to visit one of the few canals in the Midlands that we had not previously seen (indeed when we used to go on the canals it was probably not open!). This is a fascinating and interesting insight to the ingenuity and courage of the... More

We weren't disappointed, it was a canal trip with a difference! And in my opinion well worth the money. Our guide,Tim, was excellent too. The only... More
