WOW, worth taking the trip. We had Terry and stuart as our guides and all I can say is WOW the enthusiasm and information given was fantastic, everything you want to know or don’t is covered and the whole journey just flows like the canal your on. The views are amazing and it’s hard to take it all in, more so when your seeing interactive features under the modern world above. My photos don’t do it the justice it deserves. Please check it out and remember your helping to protect and preserve this water way by doing so.
We came across this wonderful experience by accident during a visit to the Black Country Museum. We had a fascinating 45 minute trip through the tunnels and mines under Dudley Castle of a narrow boat with an informative and sometimes hilarious commentary. The tunnels are fascinating and somewhat poignant, the loss of life in there was astonishing. A sound and light show on the singing cavern was fabulous and overall the trip is something to experience and excellent value for money.
The ladies at the ticket desk for the lime caves, you’re fantastic. How warm and courteous are they?! Amazing day out. Great experience, animated by the barge captain. Lots of history and interesting informative chatter aboard. Beautiful scenes and sights for a very reasonable charge. Been here twice now and I enjoyed both visits immensely.
Excellent visit great value for money with informative canal boat trip through Dudley Tunnels. Attached to the Black Country Living Museum however separate attraction with its own entrance cost (not covered in entry to the Black Country Museum) really enjoyed it and would recommend highly.
Fabulous day out for the family, interesting to learn all the history of the dudley tunnels. Excellent for my son 6yrs, who loved the boat ride and the activities after. Reasonably priced tickets. Lovely food in the cafe (Googonzler).
Brilliant trip today with the kids, and they loved it! The boat trip was better than I expected, amazing experience, knowledgeable staff and stunning views. Our ‘skipper’ was excellent, even with his painful jokes 🙂 Highly recommended!
Gangoozala is a lovely place to watch the barges go by meet friends enjoy Sunday lunch or a mid week treat, take a trip through the tunnels & hear the history of the area. The staff are very helpful & ready to chat a great place to while away a couple of hours with a drink. You can meet for group talks , children’s groups to play lots to interact with.
This is a wonderful place to visit. We took our children on the canal boat ride and learned all about the history of the canal works as well as some geological history. It was very interesting as well as having some beautiful scenery. There’s a souvenir shop on site and a cafe. The staff were very friendly and demonstrated a wealth of knowledge.
Despite living near by this was somewhere we had never really visited. However, I am so glad we did. It was such an amazing time out, learning about the history of the Dudley Canal and Tunnels, seeing the sculptures to display the history whilst listening to stories. All of us as a family enjoyed this trip even my two young children. The tickets were reasonably priced too, and if you are at the Black Country Living Museum, you can get entry to and from the canal too for a small surcharge. Fully enjoyable.
We love the canal trust. You always feel welcome even if you only paid 80p to join Tunnel Tots!! So many wonderful inclusive experiences available. Worth every penny. We did the Explorosaurus event on Friday and it was fantastic. The staff are so enthusiastic and make the children so welcome. We also saw Santa at the trust this year which was lovely. Wrap up warm and go through the magical caverns. The Gongoozler is beautiful too, lovely setting and they do a few vegan options which is brilliant for our family.
