About this event

The Dudley Underground Experience
Need to get out and enjoy some fresh air, do something different and have a great family day out? Then this is the trip for you. Please note you do have to wear a mask on this trip so bring one with you. If you don't have one we do have masks for sale on site. 
Jump on board and discover a magical underground world which dates back 428 million years.Enjoy sound and light shows, historic recreations and informative commentary delivered by your knowledgeable skipper. Learn about the material which was mined here and how it shaped the Industrial Revolution and advances in canal building. Marvel at how tropical sea-beds worked their way up through the earth to deposit amazing and unique fossils in our caverns.Pop on your hard hat and mask and sit back and discover hidden worlds as you enter our tree lined basins, filled with wildlife, peace and quiet! To ensure your safety we have implemented a range of additional precautions and changes and our trips are now pre-bookable. 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 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.
