What to Do

There is a multitude of things to do in the Black Country, if you are looking for a day out there really is no better place to go!

The Black Country today is very much the product of its unique heritage; cradle of the Industrial Revolution and this can be seen at the abundance of unique attractions.

For a whole host of hidden treasures, why not visit one of our fabulous art galleries, historic houses or creative industry venues? From works by Monet and Van Gogh, to the world's best crystal and glassware, from Pop Art to William Morris interiors, you will be surprised by the beauty that can be found hidden within the Black Country.

There is an abundance of nature and countryside throughout the Black Country and yet more stunning countryside on our doorstep. Despite its abundant industrial heritage the Black Country is surprisingly a peaceful haven for walkers and much of our countryside can be seen from the canals.

Our sport and sporting venues offer any visitor a wide choice. From football to racing - there is enough for all to enjoy. If sport's not your thing, why not try shopping? We have all the big name stores or if you prefer something a little different, why not commission your own piece of glass.
If all that activity leaves you thirsty, then don't worry, we're famous for our real ale and the excellent cuisine available in a diverse collection of restaurants, takeaways, and pubs really do cater for everyone.

Our vibrant nightscene will guarantee your day out turns into an evening to remember, so why not stay over?
