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

After seeing the episode of John Sargent barging around Britain where he visited the Dudley canal we really fancied a visit. My brother in law booked it via the internet and off we went. 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

I quite often forget about the Canal Trust boat trips, so this Easter holidays we decided to take our 4 year old daughter and our 7 year grandson for a trip. We checked the website and decided to arrive in time for the first trip 10am, taking advantage of the early bird offer which is £16.50 for a family of... More

We went on the 45min trip. The commentary was excellent as were the sound and light shows inside the limestone caverns.

I went here as part of a school trip and can only say the experience was fantastic. The classes of children totally loved the trip through the tunnels and the new audio visual displays were a real surprise! They even had a go at legging. Plenty to see and do, but wrap up warm, it's a bit chilly in the... More

Have been several times to the Dudley Canal Trust. The adults and kids alike thoroughly enjoy the experience and the information given by the tour guide. Seriously recommend going for the Christmas journey! So festive, with a pantomime in the cavern and santa comes onboard the boat too. Go and enjoy the experience...

we went here as it can be accessed through the BCLM and we were delighted with it. The tour guide was brilliant and the information was interesting. There were lots of little surprises along the way such as music and a documentary about the caves, brilliant 45 mins would definitely go again
