Travelling around Bloxwich
Small but charming, the delightful village of Bloxwich sits in the Metropolitan Borough of Walsall. Forming part of the Staffordshire/West Midlands border, the village has a distinct charm that spreads throughout its streets, mostly owing to the wonderful architecture on display and its areas of outstanding beauty.
Well-served by public transport, the area has two train stations, while Arriva provides a wealth of bus services too. These services head in and out of the village, connecting Bloxwich to places such as Walsall, Huntington and Cannock via a number of other areas.
One of the best activities to do in Bloxwich is walking, as it’s the best way to absorb the beautiful buildings that showcase the history of the village. You’ll find a whole host of architecture while wandering the wonderful streets, from Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian buildings, to 1960s and present-day buildings. Key attractions include All Saints’ Church, Bloxwich Hall, Bloxwich Hospital, alongside the areas of Sandbank, Safford Road, Wolverhampton Street and Station Street.
Most of the older buildings can be found in the town centre, which is home to a selection of independent shops and cafes. Meanwhile, the area has a number of leafy parks and gardens to sit in and enjoy. But, if you’d rather enjoy a drink indoors, Bloxwich has a number of public houses. In fact, it once had more than any other town in the Borough of Walsall.
