The old glass making cone is now at the centre of an crafts' centre with wonderful, individual private shops, a café and glass demonstrations if you're lucky. There was plenty of room in the café and quality of snacks and drinks was good. Expect to enjoy spending money on beautiful craft and glass items. There are nearby canal walks with... More

This glass making museum is fantastic, if only for the 'cone' where the glass makers worked around the furnace. Only one of 5 left in the country. Travelling tip (thanks partially to Michael Portillo's train programme); go by train from Birmingham to Stourbridge Junction, take the short ride on the shuttle to the town centre and then a bus out...

We were in town on our way elsewhere, but were intrigued by the huge cone. Fortunately we were in town for a glass festival. Parking was free a few blocks away. The museum itself was also free. We were able to watch an demonstration of glass blowing inside the cone that was very interesting. The exhibits were informative. They have... More

Driving between Dudley and West Bromwich I decided to take a detour via Stourbridge for no reason other than seeing the sign. So glad I did because I spotted an unusual concrete cone building and could not resist going inside. What a great find. I only had 30 minutes before closing but discovered discounted crystal and contemporary glass, craft and... More

A walk on the canal and a coffee and sandwich in here on a nice day, then a quick visit to freshen up and then into the cone, not bad whatever the weather.

My home-town is rich with glass-making history and the Red House Glass Cone provides a superb mix of museum (free) and related workshops. Particularly enjoyed Bebanne Art's silk scarf painting day and recommend looking at Bev's Facebook page for more information. Cosy cafe serves range of light bites, tea, coffee and yummy scones and cakes. Free parking on site, a... More

In the middle of the bustling town, the Red House Glass Cone rises as a beacon. There is a very good museum demonstrating the evolution of glass making at the Cone and how the raw materials were delivered via the canal outside. Shops selling glass and other products from large companies and small artisans rounded out the attraction. Unfortunately, our... More
