The Second Longest Navigable Canal Tunnel in the UK

3rd April, 1st May, 5th June, 3rd July, 7th August, 4th September, 2nd 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.

Bring a cushion – though you can stand up and move around its always nice to have a comfortable seat.

Though you can purchase refreshments on board you can also pack a picnic to enjoy on the boat or in the nature reserve. Alternatively why not book a picnic from our Gongoozler Restaurant – it can be waiting for you at the start of your trip.

Bring a camera – this trip takes you through an amazing built landscape rich with heritage, engineering feats in canal building and historic detail.
