About Dudley

Dudley is a vibrant, multi-cultural borough with strong communities, a wealth of heritage and a rich industrial past.  It is an area with pockets of great wealth and economic deprivation which brings many challenges.

Once at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, Dudley borough is a fascinating patchwork of towns, villages and smaller communities each with their own cultural identity. The four main townships are Brierley Hill, Dudley, Halesowen and Stourbridge.

Each has its own individual character, charm and wealth of heritage, from Stourbridge’s Glass Quarter to Dudley’s 12th century castle, from Halesowen’s historic Leasowes Park to Brierley Hill’s modern retail delights. The towns contribute their own different qualities to the borough making it a fascinating place.

You can expect to be surprised by a prestigious zoo, seemingly endless canal networks, world famous geological sites and a nationally famous industrial museum. We also enjoy wonderful green spaces including more than 35 local parks and historically significant nature reserves. For more information visit Discover Dudley.
