Our incredibly popular 45 minute boat trips run every day from Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 3pm, taking you deep underground into the abandoned limestone mines and tunnels under Castle Hill in Dudley.
Trips run regularly throughout the day and there is no need to book.; just turn up and our staff will get you on the next available boat. With our knowledgeable skipper providing a commentary, sound and light shows and displays this unique environment really comes alive.
