Part of the Black Country UNESCO Global Geopark, the Stourbridge glass quarter has been home to glassmaking for over 400 years.

The Black Country’s mining heritage comes to life at the incredible limestone mines in Dudley. Thousands of tonnes of limestone were dug out here in the 18th century and transported through the narrow tunnels to fuel the Industrial Revolution. Pop on your hard hat and enjoy a skipper-guided underground cruise along the world-famous Dudley Canal Tunnel to take in these impressive tunnels and limestone mines. We learn more about the history of this hidden world with two different underground audio-visual shows – a unique experience to remember!Back to top
