Bromsgrove is a beautiful market town, 16 miles north east of Worcester and 13 miles south west of Birmingham. It’s a busy town, with a long history dating back to the 9th century. Once the home to the Bromsgrove Guild of Applied Arts, the town was known for producing high quality sculptures and ironwork, even including the gates of Buckingham Palace!
Today, you can visit the Avoncraft Museum of Historic Buildings museum, walk along the Worcester and Birmingham Canal and spend a day at the historic country house of Hanbury Hall, now open to the public.
Every summer the town puts on the Bromsgrove Festival, a large event with classical music, literature and poetry, dance, drama, and art exhibitions. It’s definitely worth marking down on your calendar!
