Bell End is a village in the English county of Worcestershire. It is situated approximately 2 miles (3 km) south-east of Hagley on the A491, north of Bromsgrove and close to Kidderminster, Stourbridge and Halesowen. It lies in the local government District of Bromsgrove.

The village lies about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) east of Belbroughton.

On the western side of the village is Bell Hall, a Victorian Gothic mansion on the site of the original manor house. It was built in 1847 for Charles Noel, later a High Sheriff of Worcestershire, by the architect Edward Smith of Oldswinford.[1] In 2010 the property was offered for sale at £3.5 million.[2]

The village shares its name with the British slang for the glans penis.[3][4][5]
