The Grade II * Cone structure and Hot Glass Studio are closed due to heritage maintenance work. The rest of the site is open including visitor centre, coffee shop and designer-maker studios.

Situated at the heart of the historic Stourbridge Glass Quarter and next to the Stourbridge Canal, the Red House Glass Cone is one of only four left in the UK. It was built at the end of the 18th Century and used as a glasshouse, manufacturing glass, up until 1936. 

Now a Visitor Attraction owned and managed by Dudley MBC, the Cone is home to designer-maker studios, a hot glass studio, industrial collection and independent coffee shop.
