The Tour

Tours carve their way through an interwoven network of basins, junctions and limestone tunnels which stretch over 2,000 yards. During the 45-minute trip, video and waxwork displays will demonstrate the vital role the Black Country limestone played in the industrial revolution. Canal cruisers of two adults (usually £11.98) or two adults and two children (£19.45) will drift through the Lord Wards, Little Tess and Hurst caverns, and gaze up at the stalactites as they embrace the art of legging — propelling the barge through tights spaces by foot.

Choose from the following options for a canal tour:

  • £6 for two adults (50% off)

  • £9 for two adults and two children (54% off)

The Merchant

Guiding groups through a network of hidden waterways, Dudley Canal Trust brings history to life with videos, lifelike reconstructions, and impressive sound and lighting displays. The array of tours include 45-minute and two-hour jaunts through Dudley's tunnels, as well as three-hour expeditions to Netherton's tunnels and landscaped man-made lake, while a six-hour tour covers both location's sights. A gift shop and ice cream parlour cater for mementoes and refreshments, while corporate days, special seasonal events for all ages and weddings are also regularly held.
