Christmas at Dudley Canal and Caverns

Winter Nights By Christmas Lights, Santa Boat Trips

This Christmas at Dudley Canal and Caverns, climb on board and journey through our festive tunnels…

On your 45-minute boat trip we will transport you to a magical “Christmas Wonderland.” Our caverns and tunnels will be beautifully lit and decorated to create a breath-taking atmosphere. Be sure to brush up on your traditional carol and Christmas classic lyric knowledge and practice your very best panto boos and cheers as you sit back and enjoy Krazy Kris and his festive show.

It will be a real musical and visual experience that you won’t forget!

After your trip you disembark and join Santa and his elves in the Christmas Workshop that is located in our main building. With a gift for every child and a hot drink and mince pies for the adults, everyone gets a treat during this amazing experience.

Remember to bring a camera as there will be opportunities to take a Santa Sleigh Selfie with the elves.

These trips go fast so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.
