Things to do in Wordsley, West Midlands
Wordsley is situated between Stourbridge and Kingswinford in the heart of The Black Country, West Midlands. It is a village community with a host of shops and eateries and more fine ale houses than you can shake a stick at. Every summer the Wordsley Festival is a local tourist attraction pulling in tens of thousands of visitors from all over the globe, transforming the quiet village into a vibrant cosmopolitan mix of cultures.
Anybody thinking of moving to the area would also be impressed by the schools - several primary schools are amongst the best in the borough and The Wordsley School has a reputation second to none.
The church is a prime example of gothic architecture, the park boasts a boating lake and award winning gardens and the shopping centre at Wordsley Green has everything you could possibly want - you need never go to a shopping mall again!
Local celebrities have included Ronnie O'Sullivan who was born at Wordsley Hospital (now demolished to make way for a hotel complex for future festival visitors), the renowned poet Gary Bills and a local footballing hero known to all as "the best finisher in Kingswinford and surrounding areas".
For a village there is so much to see and do that you would need at least 3 to 4 days to pack it all in.
