Boating is timeless

My grandsons live in the Netherlands and found the talk given by the "pilot" extremely interesting. The history of the canal barge had them enthralled. They are 5 and 8 years old.

We went with the family for their Christmas Santa special, although enjoyed we feel a little more thought could have gone into the appearance of Santa as it was very rushed along the boat, the entertainment was good as we went through the canal.

We live in Netherton near Dudley and finally got round to going to the Dudley canal Trip. It was really worth the visit, very informative and was great to hear about our local history by canal boat. A very enjoyable day out.

When we got on the boat I didn't think that the trip would be all that but it was amazing. Loved going into the caves and the light show they put on in them was brilliant. There was some lovely sights to see and when I was looking back on the photos I took they looked like I was somewhere... More

We stayed in Wolverhampton for a couple of nights and found the Dudley Canal Trust on the internet. Lucking on one of the days they were running a 2.5 hour trip on the canals. We left the hotel in good weather, found the place easily and booked our tickets. By the time we got on the narrow boat the weather... More

We took 5 children with us and they were fascinated by this trip, they enjoyed the tunnels and having to wear the hard hats.

It was ok. Really depends on the host you get. Ours was like a comedian and kept us laughing with anecdotes. Interesting history of the canals and caverns.

Really interesting place to visit. We had elderly relative who was bit unsteady on her feet, but the gentle slope to the canal side was manageable, along with a few steps over the canal. the place is building a new visitor centre, so access will probably be better in future, but we managed very well and the staff were great...

T organise a trip on the Dudley canal for a group of about 30 people from countries in continental Europe. We did the big tout from the Black Country museum to he far end of the tunnel in Netherton. They were all to use a modern phrase 'Gob smacked' The tour guide was fantastic and the locals on the trip... More
