Here at Dudley Canal and Tunnel Trust we have worked hard to get everything ready to reopen in line with Government Guidelines  

From Friday 10th July we will be offering our fantastic underground cavern trips as a pre-booked offer. Our boats have been adapted with physical distance requirements and barriers into eight pods per boat. Each pod can hold from one adult up to two adults and two children so whatever size your family group we can accommodate you safely on your trip.  Our popular Gongoozler Coffee Shop with its canal side dining will also be open offering a range of great value refreshments.

To ensure we offer you the best value, whilst implementing our new safety measures, our pricing structure has changed as you now pay for a pod rather than individual tickets. We believe we are are still one of the best priced attractions in the area and if you gift aid your ticket you can do the trip as many times as you like for twelve months.  As an added incentive and because we recognise many families will want to now enjoy a bit more freedom and get out of the house we are offering - 

A free gift worth £3.99 for every child who takes a boat trips during July.  

You just need to claim this amazing offer when you turn up and take your trip. 

Please be aware you are required to wear masks on this trip so bring one with you. Alternatively we do have masks you can purchase.

Later in the season we will also be offering our open water boat trips which take you out into the area where you can experience a wealth of history, wildlife and fresh air. 

We are just finalising our booking system but we wanted to get the news out so you can organise a trip. We will keep this space updated and provide a full specifications of all the measures we are taking to keep you, our staff and our neighbourhood safe.


As a charity we know this pandemic has had a terrible affect on businesses and organisation and it has touched everyone in the world. It is the most challenging situation we as a Trust have ever experienced and we desperately need you help to support us and ensure we can continue to care for and preserve the unique environment which are Dudley Caverns, Tunnels and Waterways. You can do this in a number of ways.


All the funds we raise by offering our trips is invested back into our Charitable Trust. We will soon have our new booking system up and running but if you want to book a space before then, contact us on [email protected] - we can organise this for you.
