Wollescote is a residential area of Stourbridge, West Midlands, England. It is administered by the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley.

It is situated two miles east of the town centre, near the border with Halesowen.

The area was predominantly rural until the 1920s, when it was developed as a dense residential area. It now includes a varied mix of private and council housing, most of which was built after the Second World War.
