The Dudley Tunnel Trip is back in 2021 on selected dates:
22 May, 13 June, 10 July, 15 August, 11 September, 10 October
Marvel at the engineering feat which is the Dudley Tunnel. It is the second longest navigable canal tunnel in the UK.
Our guided trip will point out the underwater locks, the millions of hand made bricks and you will even get the opportunity to have a go at "Legging" the traditional way boatmen travelled through these tunnels.
A coach collects you from The Portal Building where you are taken on a short journey to Blowers Green. Here you will climb aboard and begin your trip through this spectacular tunnel.
Your trip also brings you through parts of the caverns and tunnels which were once a hive of industrial history before you moor at The Portal Building.
The boat departs at 10am promptly, so please arrive no less than 15 minutes before to ensure you have time to board.
Looking to book for a larger group? You can charter a private cruise of this trip for £600, for a maximum of 48 passengers.
Tips to make your trip more enjoyable.
Why not book Sunday lunch in the Gongoozler restaurant for your return journey? It's a real treat!
Have a go at "legging" - it really shows the effort needed to bring laden boats through the tunnels. Plus you get a certificate!
Pack a lightweight mac - our tunnels can get a bit drippy
