We expected a lot more from the Glass Cone and were a little disappointed. The cone is interesting but very little else there.

The pictures clearly show the amazing Cone, one of the few remaining. What makes a visit really enjoyable is being able to walk around freely while having people on hand who are willing to explain more about the glass industry. It takes visitors back in time to give a taste of an industry so important to Stourbridge. There was a... More

This is a superb visitor venue,but if you want to see glass blowing I would phone first.I believe it is only put on at weekends or when there is a school visit. Still lots to see. Excellent gift shop and a nice cafe.The new museum site on the other side of the road is nearing completion. See if you can... More

A very interesting and different kind of venue. Lots to see and if your lucky you get to see some glass being blown. Very informative. Interesting items in the gift shop. Picked up an exellent book about the men killed in the World Wars from Kingswinford and Wall Heath. Recommend that as well.

We stopped for a coffee and had a look in here, it was a wonderful artisan centre, all hand made and different, perfect for Christmas presents this time of year, we bought some wonderful pieces for gifts and for us!

Always good to start by saying it's free including an audio guide. A real piece of black country history, coupled with some craft outlets, a cafe and sometimes glass making demonstrations. Oh! And also ample free parking. A good old fashioned pub (Bird in Hand) literally just over the road, an eat in or take out chip shop opposite or... More

Anybody interested in the history of glass this is the place to go. Learn how it used to be made and browse around the modern day studios. Cafe also good.
