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!

A great boat trip into the passed. The skipper is well informed and makes the trip. It's amazing to travel in these tunnels and the main cavern is breath taking. It's well worth doing the trip.
