Welcome to the Black Country...
Love castles, canals and craft. Love the Black Country.
The Black Country was once known as the 'Cradle of the Industrial Revolution' and a visit to the county later you'll certainly know why. The furnaces have long since cooled and the chimneys that forged such progress are now towering monuments. What is left is truly fascinating.
In a single visit you can enjoy glass manufacturing once synonymous with the area at Broadfield House Glass Museum, the Industrial past at the Black Country Living Museum as well as great performances at The Public, a new arts and events centre in West Bromwich and nightlife in Wolverhampton, one of the countries newest cities.
Use the quick finder to the left or navigation above to find these attractions, accommodation, festival and events plus much more.
