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!

Did the 2 hour trip...very interesting experience. Not only the tunnel which is more interesting than youd expect, but underground mines and caverns as well. Nice cafe at the center also...plenty of parking. Good value visit. Going to try the 6 hour next.

Great morning out with the grandkids. Didn't know it would be so interesting and beautiful. We forget there's a lot to see and do in Dudley. I would thoroughly recommend

What a wonderful, serene journey! Who would've thought the Black Country, with it's industrial heritage could be so beautiful. Silently glading through it's history on an electrically-powered boat was surreal. The Skipper and crew were friendly, helpful and informative.

This is located on the same site as BCLM and is a separate attraction. Took a 45 minute trip in a canal boat through the tunnels and caverns. The chap steering the boat was engaging and informative. Bit of an eye opener really, well worth...More

We visited as part of visiting the BCLM, although we didn't realise it was separate attraction. There is a 45 min ride along the canal in a barge, with an informative guide including a light and music show, and a modern visitor centre. Well worth...More

We did the 45 minute boat trip with cream tea 2 years ago and it was something we wanted to share with younger family members. We finally managed it at the weekend and was so pleased to see the amazing job the Trust has done....More
