Travelling around Aldridge
Aldridge is a truly beautiful place located in the West Midlands. Historically part of Staffordshire, this large village is well-known for having a large number of private homes, which have been built over the last 100 years.
It is also a popular commuter town for Birmingham, which means there are not only a number of fun things to do here, but also a number of great public transport connections. Arriva provides bus services in and out of Aldridge, so that you can reach the wider area with ease.
If you are a bit of a shopaholic, then Aldridge will provide you with everything you could want or need. A wealth of shopping opportunities can be found on the High Street and Anchor Road, but the most popular shopping area is known as ‘The Parade’. Around all three of these areas, you’ll find everything from well-known names to smaller independent shops that are unique to Aldridge.
If you require some refreshments after dashing around the shops, the area has a number of wonderful places to eat that are popular with both locals and those from further afield.
To find out more about the area’s history, pay a visit to the Aldridge Transport museum or visit the Wall Roman Site, which features the ruins of a Roman Inn and bathhouse. Meanwhile, the historic area is full of wonderful old architecture, such as St Mary’s Church, The Croft and The Moot House.
