Black Country is a unique part of England that is different in terms of both economic and cultural heritage. Instead of being under control of just one main centre, Dudley is made up of several small townships, all with their individual culture and characteristics.
For a look at the industrial revolution and its impact on the area, the 'Black Country Living Museum' is a must see site. Since the Middle Ages, ironstone and coal have been mined in the area. Visitors here have the option of taking a boat trip into the Dudley Tunnel.
With your own form of transport you must visit the most famous attraction in the area, Dudley Castle. Located in the grounds of Dudley Zoo, the ruined castle can be reached by a brief walk from the zoo entrance. There is much to explore and see around the castle and Dudley Zoo is a great attraction for the family.
Apart from the castle, the zoo grounds also have 12 Art Deco buildings and grounds to spend the day relaxing and taking in the sights of the animals. There are also several shops and restaurants here, as well as in the town itself.
