The Dudley Tour forms a ring around Dudley Borough, visiting various sites of interest.
Beginning at Castle Gate Island in Dudley, by the Castle/Zoo, the tour takes the bypass around the town centre, continuing along the A461 past Fens Pool Nature Reserve, to Brierley Hill. After continuing along the edge of Merry Hill Shopping Centre on the A4100, the tour takes Amblecote Road, Hillfields Road and Vicarage Road through Withymoor Village to Amblecote, where the tour heads north on the A491. At Wall Heath, the tour continues north on the A449, beyond the borough boundary to Himley Hall (which is owned by Dudley MBC). Taking the B4176 back to Dudley, the tour avoids the town centre by taking The Parade to the A459, which passes alongside the Castle/Zoo to return to the start.
