Dudley Council the historic capital of the Black Country

The Red House Glass Cone is a great site to explore, enjoy and spend time. We are now open to the public. Social distancing measures are in place on site and you will be asked to wear a face covering when entering the visitor centre and individual studios.

Sadly the cone structure will remain closed whilst we carry out essential repairs and maintenance.  There will be no live glass blowing demonstrations and we have suspended our craft programme for the interim, however you can download our Augmented Reality App and explore the site and see a virtual glass blowing demonstration.  (We recommend downloading the app before attending the site, this can be found within your phone’s app store, type in Red House Glass Cone).

We do not have our usual Duck or Titanic Trails at the moment but there is a great new Family Trail - Are you a Red House Super Sleuth?  Complete the questions and get a personalised Certificate.

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.
