It’s often thought of in the second instance when exploring options in the midlands – but Birmingham’s neighbouring city Wolverhampton has just as much on offer for its visitors and a great range of fabulous venues to choose from for large and small events.
Wolverhampton has a rich heritage and diverse cultural profile, which lends a fabulously unique flavour to the city. Its historical prevalence has left it with plenty of beautiful buildings at its heart – including the 19th century Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Wolverhampton Civic Hall, Queen’s Building, St Peter’s Collegiate Church and New Cross Hospital. Nearby elegant Wightwick Manor and Gardens is adorned with interiors designed by famous artist William Morris, and West Park features a pretty boating lake, bowling green and Victorian-era conservatory.
The largely pedestrianised central zone between Victoria St and Dudley Street contains The Mander Shopping centre as well as a host of national and local retailers. The Wulfran Shopping Centre sits on the south side of the city.
Wolverhampton University attracts students nationwide each year – and the campus and subsequent development has ensured an abundance of amenities, bars and restaurants throughout the city centre. There are many excellent options when it comes to finding food and drink in the city – especially if you’re a fan of flavours from around the world. Bilash is well-known as a firm favourite for Indian cuisine, whilst The Drawing Room’s take on classic British fare offers one of the most elegant fine dining experiences in the midlands. Meanwhile there’s also good news for sports fans – Wolverhampton Wanderers (also known as Wolverhampton Wolves) call the city home.
