Stourbridge is famous for its Glass industry and the Stourbridge Lion locomotive, the first train to run in the USA in 1829. Stourbridge is a great place to live in and visit as well, with parks and pleasant suburbs. Situated on the edge of the area known as the "Black Country" and less than fifteen miles from Birmingham, Stourbridge has lovely countryside nearby, with villages such as Kinver, Churchill, Belbroughton and Clent just a few minutes drive away. Also, the Stourbridge Canal offers great walks or bike rides. Yet Stourbridge is both industrial and rural, and this contributes to its unique character. Stourbridge town centre features many well preserved buildings and interesting specialist shops, while great pubs and restaurants make the town well worth a visit.
Pubs are an integral part of British culture and Stourbridge has pubs of all sorts in abundance. Cosy locals, town centre bars, sport bars and pubs serving food.
The Party Bus Team Recommends a visit to The River Rooms. This is a popular and totally unique venue with a modern and contemporary look, based in a converted factory unit, adjacent to the famous river Stour. This venue hosts some of the best band and live entertainment around.
There’s something for all tastes, upcoming new bands, fantastic tribute artists and the occasional musical legend. They have one of the most impressive sized stages around – great for both performers and the audience alike. The River Rooms has superb acoustics, a large bar, seating areas, plus a good sized dance floor for that truly friendly party atmosphere.
