The town continued to expand throughout the 18th and 19th Centuries, becoming the world centre for nail-making and founding the Bromsgrove Railway Works. Bromsgrove now plays host to the Artrix Arts Centre and there are plenty of other attractions and sites for tourists to enjoy throughout the town.
Close to Bromsgrove you will find the Clent and the Walton Hills. With just under a million people visiting each year, the Clent Hills are graced with several classically inspired architectural works from around the 1750s. Most of them in the private grounds of 18th Century Hagley Hall, which is open to the public.
Events throughout the year take place in the town’s parks and open spaces including the Town Centre with it’s striking traditional, long high street which hosts a popular refurbished outdoor market. The active community promotes a vibrant music and arts scene around and in the Town Centre as well as within the Artrix – a cinema, arts, music and comedy centre. Great food and drink, real ale pubs, canal restaurants and country pubs provide a great choice for visitors.
