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!

Found this place via the Black Country museum as we were in there and booked the 45 minute tour with my partner as a bit of a spur of the moment thing. Utterly brilliant. The open water between the tunnels was amazing, you'd never guess...More
