One of The Guardian’s must visit venues for 2024, we are delighted to have the support of the Black Country Living Museum for this year’s event.

An award-winning open air museum, it tells the story of one of the very first industrialised landscapes in Britain. Set across 26 acres, you’ll explore carefully reconstructed shops, houses and industrial areas that represent the Black Country’s story. You’ll learn how steam power, human ingenuity and an increasingly interconnected world transformed this region into a manufacturing powerhouse.
