West Bromwich Hotels

Mini guide to West Bromwich

     

West Bromwich was first mentioned in the Domesday Book and sits at the heart of the region known as the 'Black Country'. It has many historic buildings which give the visitor glimpses of its ancient and more recent industrial past.

Sites worth seeing include the 17th century timber framed Oak House which has been renovated to allow visitors to get a glimpse of Tudor life. The house's collection of period furniture features many unique items loaned from the Victoria and Albert Museum. The Georgian terrace of Highfields also merits a trip.

For walking enthusiasts the 200 acre Sandwell Valley Country Park contains beautiful woodland walks, a working farm with livestock and the remains of the 18th century Sandwell Hall. The visitor centre also includes a blacksmith's shop and Victorian schoolroom.

Shoppers should go to the pedestrianised town centre with its half a mile of shops and market stalls. For food options the town centre features many cafes, pubs and the famed Balti house Indian restaurants. For a true taste of what West Bromwich offers try and see the local football team, West Bromwich Albion, known as the Baggies, and experience the unbridled enthusiasm of the fans.

Near West Bromwich is the Black Country Living Museum which recreates the region's industrial past, with historic buildings and staff in period costumes to bring the era to life. Also nearby is Britain's second largest city, Birmingham, with its vibrant nightlife, designer shops and National Exhibition centre.

If driving to West Bromwich take the M5, exiting at Junction 1. To get there by train first go to Birmingham from where you can take a train on the Birmingham-Wolverhampton line, with the journey taking less than 30 minutes.
