Wolverhampton is a hidden gem that we think is worthy of some attention.
The university city has plenty to offer in the way of culture, sport, the great outdoors and an emerging food and drinks scene.
So, here’s our list of the top things to do in this historic West Midlands city:
Art and local history buffs alike have a treat in store for them at Wolverhampton Art Gallery. It’s free to enter, full of local history, archaeology, contemporary sculptures and Old Masters.
It’s easy to spend a morning here browsing the permanent art display that spans 300 years, and visiting collections. Also, the gallery shop is a perfect stop off for unusual gifts, including contemporary work by local artists and crafters.
Right in the city centre, the Newhampton Arts Centre (known as “The NAC”) is the perfect spot for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in creativity.
More than 30 creatives including musicians, artists and actors appear here. It’s the ideal place to head for comedy, art, drama, music, contemporary culture and community life.
Football fans will know that Wolverhampton Wanderers, aka the Wolves, are enjoying a good 2020 season. Promoted to the Premier League after a six-year absence, it’s safe to say they have a loyal following.
Tickets may be hard to come by, but if football is your game, watching the Wolves in their ascendancy is a great way to spend an afternoon.
Alternatively, check out the Wolves Museum or take a stadium tour for a truly immersive sporting experience.
Lovers of the great outdoors can do worse than spend a day at Baggeridge Country Park.
So, stretch your legs across 150 beautiful acres of parkland.
Formerly a colliery, the park was built by Lancelot (Capability) Brown. Although not in the city, it’s a mere 20-minute drive from the city centre and a perfect way to spend an afternoon walking, riding, cycling or fishing.
If you prefer to combine your leg stretch with some waterside history, take the Wolverhampton locks walking trail. This will guide you along the city’s 21 locks for a different take on the city’s architecture and history.
For beer lovers, there’s no better place than Bank’s Brewery.
Take a brewery tour to learn how the beer is fermented and get an insight into the evolution of beer brewing methods. Then round things off with three free halves of Bank’s cask ale.
Alternatively, if Gin’s more your thing, you can’t avoid The Grain Store Gin Emporium and Kitchen for a pre-dinner sundowner after a hard day’s sightseeing.
On the other hand, traditionalists may prefer a real ale pub such as The Lych Gate Tavern, where you can sup a pint in 16th-18th century surroundings.
We hope this list whetted your appetite for Wolverhampton. It’s by no means exhaustive, but we hope it gives you just a taster of what this exciting city has to offer.
