See the light at the end of the tunnel
Standedge Tunnel, in the heart of the Pennine countryside, is the longest canal tunnel in Britain.
Re-opened in 2001 after a 20 year restoration programme, the Standedge Tunnel & Visitor Centre sits on the banks of the historic Huddersfield Narrow Canal, a waterway of startling contrasts from tranquil countryside to dramatic mills.
As one of the Seven Wonders of the Waterways, you can now explore deep into this marvellous Yorkshire attraction on a 30 minute or 50 minute guided boat trip which provide an insight into its 200 year old history.
To top off your trip, stop for a bite to eat in the newly refurbished Watersedge cafe, and visit the exhibition centre which tells the history of this fascinating waterway.
