Cradley Heath is a small town, there are good train links into Birmingham. It is quite a rough area and is not well funded. There are a lot of council houses and cheap flats available. However, you can reach Birmingham within 30 minutes by train, which is great for nightlife. I would not recommend living in Cradley Heath, unless you are trying to save money on rent.

Cradley Heath is vibrant and multicultural and is set in the heart of the “Black Country” and very industrialised. However, it also has many parks and open spaces. There are many canals running through it and a network of tunnels. Millions of years ago it lay under a tropical sea.
