See the network of underground canal routes that helped form the industrial Black Country and marvel at the fantastic Limestone Caverns. Enjoy a canalside walk or relaxing boat trip, and admire the local history. See if you can spot any of the limestone fossils remaining from when the area was below sea, and explore the Dudley Tunnel - don't be startled by the bats!

Brilliant experience on the Trusts long barges, exploring the caves and caverns of these old limestone workings. Really well organised across the board. The trips are every 30 minutes or so, last about an hour and are very reasonably priced. There is a great cafe...More

Found this place via the Black Country museum as we were in there and booked the 45 minute tour with my partner as a bit of a spur of the moment thing. Utterly brilliant. The open water between the tunnels was amazing, you'd never guess...More

Veteran canal restorer and our group had booked a trip through the Dudley and Netherton tunnels. Absolutely brilliant. I was on the 6 hour trip (Mrs T doesn't do underground) but I loved every minute, particularly the witty commentary from our ex fireman ex policeman...More

We booked the ‘Singing Cavern’ at Dudley Canal Trust for our wedding ceremony in May after visiting on a number of occasions and hearing that the caverns were a licensed venue. We wanted something a bit different and the Singing Cavern fitted the bill perfectly....More

We've been to the neighbouring Black Country museum many times but never walked through to the canal trust centre. We had a brilliant couple of hours in the exhibition and then on the tour of the local canal tunnels. The guide was very good, knowledgeable...More

I expected to be travelling a full 45 minutes along these canals but instead we stopped for two 8-10 minute video presentations along the way. Unfortunately the first chose to concentrate on the erroneous belief of evolution from a single cell and how after 450...More

Hi, I enjoyed my 45 minute boat trip greatly and did a gift aid donation and was given a 'free return visit' season ticket. But I am not sure what is meant by a 'free return visit' season ticket because isn't entry to the building/exhibition free anyway? Does the free return visit mean another free boat trip please?
