Embark on a mesmerizing 4-hour Dudley Tunnel Trip and witness the marvel of engineering that is the Dudley Tunnel, the second longest navigable canal tunnel in the UK. As you venture through this historic passageway, our expert guides will unveil the secrets hidden beneath the surface, from the fascinating underwater locks to the millions of handcrafted bricks that form this architectural masterpiece.

But the adventure doesn’t stop there – immerse yourself in the traditions of the past as you try your hand at “Legging,” the age-old method used by boatmen to navigate these tunnels. The first half of your journey takes you through the entire Dudley Tunnel, starting from the Tipton Portal (our main site) and extending to the Parkhead Portal. As you make your way back, explore the labyrinthine caverns and tunnels that once bore witness to industrial history, including the legendary Singing Cavern. This unforgettable trip blends history, hands-on experiences, and the enchanting echoes of the past, making it a journey through time you won’t want to miss.

The boat departs at 10am promptly, so please arrive no less than 15 minutes before to ensure you have time to board.
