Dudley is a town in the West Midlands county of England located 6 miles (9.7 km) south-east of the city of Wolverhampton and 8 miles (13 km) north-west of the city of Birmingham. The town forms the administrative and financial centre of the wider Metropolitan Borough of Dudley. According to the 2011 census, the town has a population of 79,379, making it the second largest town in the Black Country region of England behind West Bromwich. Dudley is sometimes called the capital of the Black Country.

In recent years Dudley town centre has become somewhat run down, a state of affairs that is often blamed on the construction of the Merry Hill Shopping Centre 2.5 miles (4.0 km) away at Brierley Hill which caused a number of major retailers and businesses to relocate out of the town centre. However, the town is home to major tourist attractions, namely Dudley Zoo, Dudley Castle and the Black Country Living Museum; and the historic marketplace is currently (2014) undergoing regeneration.
