Sandwell is a large district to the west of Birmingham’s city centre, with West Bromwich at its heart. And if you keep going west you’ll reach the borough of Dudley on the edge of the metropolis. Sandwell and Dudley Station is actually well inside the former town, with Dudley being a few kilometres away, but it’s the only station that has inter-city services in the area, which means locals don’t always have to travel into the city centre if they want to head to another city. Dudley Port and Tipton stations serve Dudley itself – but services are only local.
Sandwell and Dudley will be your stop if you’re coming from out of town, and there are plenty of reasons to come. West Bromwich is of course home to the famous Baggies football club – The Hawthorns is just to the west of Sandwell, on the borders of the city centre. Dudley boasts two attractions in one – the 11th-century castle and the zoo that sits in its grounds, so you can easily spend a day admiring British history and natural history without travelling between them.Book direct
