Bearwood Bus Station is an open air bus station next to Lightwoods Park, and the Kings Head clock is now near here. It is the only bus station in Smethwick.

Where is Bearwood Bus Station?

Bearwood Bus Station is at Adkins Lane, Bearwood, Smethwick, B67 5DP. Also on Herbert Road and next to Lightwoods Park. Close to Hagley Road West.


In brief

A small bus station with a small number of bus stops. Mostly for terminating bus routes such as the 82 and 48. Adkins Lane Car Park is in the centre, and to the south is Edge Coffee. Other bus routes stop nearby on Hagley Road West, Bearwood Road and Lordswood Road, but not at the bus station itself. The King's Head Clock was relocated nearby in 2015-16.
