Dudley Council the historic capital of the Black Country
Dudley Skyline

Dudley Borough is made up of four main town centres, Dudley, Brierley Hill, Halesowen and Stourbridge. Each town centre has its own individual character and charm.

Brierley Hill

Situated at the heart of Dudley Borough, Brierley Hill has plenty to offer from shopping opportunities to a relaxing canalside dining experience.  Home to the famous Merry Hill Centre, Brierley Hill brings all the big name stores under one roof for an unbeatable day's shopping. Add this to the town's bustling high street and three indoor markets and you can see the appeal Brierley Hill holds for the serious shopaholic!

The Waterfront

The bars and restaurants of The Waterfront can be the ideal place to spend a few hours, whether you're lazing in the summer sunshine beside the waters of the Dudley canal over a leisurely lunch or enjoying some of the best nightlife to be found in the Midlands.

Delph Road

Is known as the 'Real Ales Riviera' of Dudley and is home to an impressive number of pubs. The well-known 'Nine Lock' (although, mysteriously there are only eight!) run parallel to the road and provide a pleasant walk through a conservation area. 


Dudley is the historic and civic heart of the Borough. With its Castle, Zoo, market, museums and medieval street layout there is also enormous potential. Already the town has a wealth of professional services and retail outlets to suit all pockets and tastes. The bustling town centre and its market are a focus for activity for the local population and through regeneration the Council is looking to revive the town’s fortunes based on a richer mix of shops, cafés, restaurants, small businesses and creative enterprises, allied with its status as the tourism focus for the Black Country.
Major developments on-going or in the pipeline include:
  • £81m major mixed-use town centre regeneration scheme
  • major expansions to Dudley College - Institute of Technology
  • building of the Very Light Rail National Innovation Centre
  • major new Metro infrastructure investment underway
  • new transport interchange located in the heart of the town centre
  • new proposals for the Castle Hill area
All of these improvements and developments will ensure Dudley remains at the forefront as a leading shopping, leisure and business centre, supporting a vibrant economy.

Halesowen stands on the border of the Black Country and Birmingham, and is exceptionally convenient for both. Dating from Saxon times, it features everything you would expect in a small to medium sized town whilst retaining the character and feel of the village it once was.


Stourbridge, on the Borough's south-west fringe, has long been a centre of creativity. Home to the world's finest glass designers and makers since the seventeenth century, today Stourbridge still boasts the highest concentration of artists in Dudley Borough.
