Dudley Canal Trust - Dudley: Historic Canal Tour For Two (£6) or Family (£9) with Dudley Canal Trust (up to 54% Off)

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.

Enjoyed the trip on the Dudley canal trip. Very informative. Not impressed with the food at the restaurant. 4 adults had a coffee and a scone ( which was very dry). My son had sausage and mash from the kids menu. Really small portion of lumpy mash. He said the sausage was nice. Would not visit the restaurant again!
