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!

Our guide was very knowledgable and explained a lot of the history of the canals and tunnels. Very interesting as an Australian to see the canal system and experience how they were utilised!

Visited earlier in the year and had a very interesting tour through the tunnels with a very knowledgeable guide who provided a lot of detail on the history of the tunnels. Good value for money

We took my son, 11 year old, and 7 of his friend as a part of his birthday treat. The person given the talk was very knowledgeable and all children and grown ups had a good time.

The boat trips are well priced and very very interesting, but be warned, there are flashing lights which can upset some people who suffer... More
