Red House Glass Cone

The Red House Glass Cone, Wordsley was built at the end of the 18th century.  It was used for the manufacture of glass until 1936 and is now one of only four cones left in the UK (and the most complete in Europe).

With its picturesque location along the Stourbridge canal, the cone, which reaches 100 feet into the sky, is now a busy heritage site. 

Visitors to the cone can take a free self guided tour around the historic site and at weekends between 1.30pm to 3.30pm can enjoy glassblowing demonstrations in the hot glass studio.  

There are a number of designer-maker studios and it is a great place for families with children's activities and events during school holidays (JAM club). The Red Cone Coffee House offers a varied menu including sandwiches, baguettes, freshly ground coffee, real Belgian hot chocolate and a menu for children.
