Why Move to Redditch?
Set within the beautiful county of Worcestershire, Redditch is at the heart of the British motorway network.
Cleverly designed, back in the early sixties, Redditch was a flagship for new town planning. Perhaps one of the greenest towns in the country, its main roads were banked and attractively landscaped to reduce noise and approximately 5 million trees were planted across the district.
Redditch has a long and interesting history. Back in the early 19th century, it was the international centre for the needle and fishing tackle industry, with 90% of the world’s needles made in the town.
Today this compact borough of 54 square miles and over 80,000 people offers its residents a mix of old and new.
Redditch town centre has relatively recently been totally overhauled and has become a real hub of culture and entertainment.
Living here offers quick and convenient connections to the rest of the country via the M42, M40 and M45.
Situated 15 miles from Birmingham and 27 miles from Wolverhampton with Birmingham International Airport being less than a 30 minutes’ drive away nothing is too far away.
People love the area because it is also within easy reach of pleasant countryside and places of great historic interest such as Stratford-upon-Avon (Shakespeare’s birthplace), Warwick Castle, the Malvern Hills, and the Cotswolds.
Everything you need for daily living is right here in Redditch. There is a range of local shops, a chemist, and several dentists and just a short distance away is the huge modern Kingfisher Shopping Centre where you will find a good selection of retail outlets, plenty of cafes and restaurants and oodles of parking.
Leisure facilities include a municipal golf course, sports centres, numerous clubs and societies, and the renowned Edwardian and modernised Palace Theatre, Church Green conservation area and the 18th-century St Stephens Church.
Redditch’s economic wealth comes from high tech industries, including pharmaceutical giant Bayer and telecommunications behemoth Vodafone, the town’s largest employer.
Redditch Schools & Education
Redditch is one of the few areas of the country where the three-tier system of first, middle and high schools still exists where students attend first school from the age of 4, middle school from the age of 9, and secondary school at the age of 13.
There are six middle schools to choose from. Birchensale Middle School and Walkwood Church of England Middle School were both rated by Ofsted as “good”.
The town is home to four high schools, Tudor Grange Academy, Trinity High School, RSA Academy Arrow Vale and Saint Augustine’s Catholic High School with the latter having been awarded the highest rating of “outstanding” by Ofsted.
Heart of Worcestershire College (often referred to locally as “HOW College”) is a large general further education college: one of its four campuses is based in central Redditch; the other three are in Bromsgrove, Worcester, and Malvern.
Things to do in Redditch
Although not considered a large town, Redditch has some interesting places to visit and things to do, more than enough to keep everyone busy.
Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch is an unusual and fascinating place to visit. This historic site illustrates the rich heritage of the needle and fishing tackle industries. Models and recreated scenes provide a vivid illustration of how needles were once made.

Redditch can be divided into two distinct areas: A cosmopolitan district in the northeast encompassing the town centre and a more rural area to the southwest of the town.
There are a number of sought-after neighbourhoods in both areas with Headless Cross, Astwood Bank, Crabbs Cross and Brockhill among some of the most favoured.
Brockhill, one of the new build estates on the outskirts of the town. It offers a variety of property types, from starter homes to five-bedroom detached houses.
