Dudley Canal & Caverns

Dudley Canal & Caverns staff have been very busy adding new offers for 2023 to ensure there is so much more to see and do!

More of the towpath and new interpretation is now available to everyone showcasing how important the canals have been throughout history. The historic boat area has had a makeover and there are now opportunities to climb aboard and see for yourself how our ancestors lived and worked aboard the workhorses of the cut.

In Hurst Cavern, a new digital display better tells the story of the miners themselves and how integral they were to the extraction and use of limestone. Animated figures, live storytelling and digital technology all combine to create an informative and thought-provoking scene.

Our recently updated and decorated Gongoozler Café Restaurant, with its canal side dining and plush seating overlooking the canal, is a perfect place to enjoy a bite to eat, a cup of coffee or a cool glass of something fizzy.

They have a jampacked events calendar planned for this year, including the ever-popular Easter, Halloween, and Christmas specials.

On site facilities include free coach and car parking, various rotating exhibitions, a well-stocked gift shop, and of course the Gongoozler Café Restaurant. Dudley Canal & Caverns’ site is completely wheel-chair accessible, including the boats!
