Halesowen is situated in the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley in the West Midlands at the edge of the largely industrial area of the Midlands. It is 10 miles away from Birmingham making it an ideal commuter area within easy access of the motorway network into Birmingham, which is a thirty minute drive, and beyond via the M6 and M5. The regular number 9 bus can also be used to reach the city and avoids any problems parking.
Despite its proximity to the major commercial heart of the Midlands, Halesowen is located within easy access of the countryside of the Clent Hills and the Black Country.
Housing stock in the area is substantially post-war and built from 1950 to 1980, although there are still many Victorian and Edwardian terraced houses to choose from. There are six historic suburbs within Halesowen; Cradley, Hasbury, Hawne, Hayley Green, Hill and Cakemore and Lapal offering a good choice of all types of accommodation.
Due to its location, Halesowen offers easy access to shops and leisure facilities both in its own town centre and in nearby Birmingham. There are extensive schools both primary and secondary as well as a further education college.
