Based in Dudley, it’s easy to sometimes forget that in the town there’s so much more to see and do when not visiting the DW Windows HQ or showrooms. We’ve become fond of some of the area’s more lesser known attractions, and somewhat feel obligated to share them and in effect give back to the local community.

So when we’re not helping homeowners make their home the best it can possibly be, we’re most likely doing one of these:

1. Dudley Zoo and Castle

Dudley Zoo

A 40-acre zoo found within the prestigious grounds of the Dudley Castle estate, Dudley Zoo and Castle has been welcoming fans of all things cute and furry through its doors since 1937. Many of the animals featured in the zoological garden’s collection forms part of an international breeding programme intent on preserving certain endangered species. At the zoo you’ll find Asiatic Lions, Tibetan Red Pandas, and more, and when you’re done you can always pay a visit to the corresponding 11th century castle.

2. Castle Casino

Unlike most other casinos, entry to Castle Casino is free and instant with an introductory £10 bet to get you going.

3. Duncan Edwards Statue

Memorialising one of the town’s greatest footballers who played for Manchester United as well as the national team, but was tragically taken too soon, the Duncan Edwards statue can be found in the town centre. With a career of just 5 years Edwards was able to help United win two Football League championships, truly solidifying himself as a local hero.

4. Black Country Living Museum

Black country museum in Dudley

Successfully relaying the storied history of the various Black Country towns, at the museum you’ll be able to visit and explore over 50 authentic workshops, houses, and shops, replicating times gone by. There’s also the chance to take a trip on the tram, explore an underground mine and just generally step into the past in a fun day out for all the family.

5. Saltwells local nature reserve

Located in the Netherton area of Dudley’s Metropolitan Borough, Saltwells local nature reserve offers those who visit beautifully picturesque landscapes and thriving wildlife. There are 16 species of Dragonfly alone, making the reserve one of the best places in the country to visit for these insects. Who knows what else you’ll discover upon visiting one of the UK’s largest urban nature reserves, covering a whopping 247 acres.

7. Priory Park

Priory Park in Dudley

Named after the Old Priory of St James’s, Priory Park was opened in 1932 and features various remains of the original 18th century structure to view. The site very recently enjoyed a reformation thanks to a £1.8 million investment donated by the Heritage Lottery Fund, now regularly hosting events and social gatherings.

Dudley: The home of DW Windows and so much more

As you can see, there’s plenty to see and do in our little town of Dudley. Once you’ve finished improving your home via the use of new windows, doors, and conservatories, we’d highly recommend visiting some of them. For more information, call us free on 0800 999 0909 or send us an online message.
