Want to organise a work meeting, personal celebration or use us as a venue for your own activities? We have a range of options and ideas which we can discuss with you.

We are very lucky here at Dudley Canal and Tunnel Trust to have some amazing facilities which can be hired privately or as part of a joint offer.


Our boats can be used as a floating meeting room and office - either moored or out on a cruise from 10-20 guests. As a great way of having a staff or family outing for up to 50 guests or as a way of a social event with a difference. By booking the boat it is yours exclusively and we can tailor the package, refreshments, route and timings to suit your needs.
