We took a lovely canal boat trip from the Dudley Canal Trust situated on the Birmingham Road and had a brilliant couple of hours. It is absolutely amazing what is underneath your feet and you don't even know it.

The boat trip at Black Country museum is a must when you go. It is an additionnal £9 but well worth it as you have a nice little trip on a boat down the tunnels and then to the main cavern which is very pretty.

Went on a 45 tour on Saturday 9th August. My partner and I loved it so much that we are planning a return trip to do the full 2 hour tour which sadly seem to run infrequently. Great commentary and very informative.

Excellent trip through canal tunnels. Entertaining and interesting commentary. Go before midday during summer holiday and save money.
