Planning your visit
Address: Black Country Living Museum, Tipton, Dudley, West Midlands, DY1 4SQ View on Google map
Price: Once you're parked up, it won't cost you a thing
Toilets: Toilets are available in nearby attractions
Enjoy a canalside walk or relaxing boat trip, and admire the local history. See if you can spot any of the limestone fossils remaining from when the area was below sea, and explore some of the numerous local attractions, like the Dudley Tunnel, the only tunnel where boaters must still 'leg it' through because no engines are allowed - just don't be startled by the bats!
Places to eat:
Bats are the big draw here. In the evening look out for Daubenton's and Pipistrelles especially around the tunnel entrance. Shoals of Chubb are also a common sight.
By car - parking is available at the Black Country Living Museum and Dudley Tunnel (separate attractions)
By train - Tipton station is roughly a 15 minute walk to the Dudley Tunnel entrance
