Standedge Tunnel and Visitor Centre Marsden Reviews
Hidden Magic Jan 01, 2014
You can drive round and park in the visitor centre, or catch the train out from Huddersfield and have a very pleasant walk along the canal to get to the tunnel. Open most of the year round, there is a Visitor Centre with an outdoor play area for children, and down by the tunnel there is a little cafe where you can sit outside on the canal side. They do boat trips into the tunnel for approximately half an hour; they can't go the whole way through as it takes about 3 hours. Personally I'm quite happy sitting with my cup of tea watching the birds and enjoying the sunshine - the tunnel looks quite eerie on the pictures!
