The cone is awesome, as it comes into view,but when inside things take a turn for the amassing. The whole area is laid out well a few specialist crafters, working away, with their wears for sale, and a word of advice to men with wives that like bright shiny jewelry... STAY CLEAR OF HERE. I have found it impossible to... More

The cafe is excellent. Afternoon teas are freshly made, good choice of sandwiches, fresh scones and home made cakes. Take a doggy bag!

An interesting living testimony to the association of Stourbridge and glass. Watch a skilled glass-blower create beautiful items in front of your eyes and then pass though a collections of objects showing how the craft developed in the area. The German Second World War maps showing industrial sites to be targeted are particularly fascinating. The various boutiques around the cone... More

We visited the Red House Glass Cone yesterday in a group of 49. This had been pre-booked. The staff were all most welcoming, friendly and helpful. The two guides were friendly, very knowledgeable, amusing and held our attention as they brought the place and its past people to life. One really gained an appreciation of how the people lived and... More

I have recently taken part in some glass blowing workshops up in Stourbridge at The Red Cone Glass House. These workshops have been taught by master glass blower Malcolm Andrews who used to work in the glass industry when it was thriving in Britain. The skills he has taught us are skills that would have originally been secrets kept within... More

There's plenty to do if you take your time to look around properly. Lots of little shops offering a variety of products. Personalised gifts, handmade jewellery, recycled glass products and much more. The museum is fascinating too, watching the traditional glass blowing was great, the local history is amazing. Great canal walks around the area. Finished off with a coffee... More

I wasn't quite sure what to expect here, but what I got was a pleasant and fascinating afternoon out in a fascinating old industrial museum. Its well laid out and explains the glass making process in an easily understandable way, I was able to se the differences between the glass making (continuous process) and the pottery kiln at Coalport.
