Tiny and tree-surrounded Stourbridge Town train station is one of only two stations on the Stourbridge Town Branch Line which reputedly makes it the shortest branch line in Europe. Built in 1879 to give Stourbridge a station nearer to the town centre, its only direct trains are those run by West Midlands which make the 3 minute journey to Stourbridge Junction. However from here the possibilities are rather more varied with Kidderminster, Worcester, Birmingham and Stratford-upon-Avon just some of the destination options.
Bustling and historic Stourbridge – famous for its glass industry which still continues today - has plenty to keep the visitor busy. The town is full of pubs, restaurants, one-of-a-kind shops and many historic buildings – all within easy walking distance of the station. It also has the Lace Guild Museum while its canal offers boat trips or tranquil walks. For those who want to venture a little further afield Stourbridge is surrounded by lovely countryside and many villages with interesting things to see and do. Nearby are the Broadfield House Glass Museum situated between Stourbridge and Kingswinford and the Red House Cone Museum in Wordsley. This museum is housed inside the best preserved of only 4 remaining complete cones of this kind which were used for the production of glass. Outdoor lovers can go hill-walking in the close-at-hand Clent Hills or wander Saltwells Nature Reserve. To make exploration of the local area especially easy Stourbridge Town train station gives direct access to the town's bus station.
