Wolverhampton is one of the four Metropolitan Boroughs within the West Midlands, this city is full of vibrant history, local attractions, rich in different cuisine and bars to make the perfect day and night out on the town. Initially known as a market town, we fast became a major centre in the industrial revolution for coal mining, steel production, lock-making and the manufacture of cars and motorcycles.
Beyond the history and economy, Wolverhampton is benefiting from multiple projects and investments both completed and ongoing. Projects such as the move of the new city centre market from Market Square to Southside, fronting Cleveland Street will benefit from a boost in footfall from its proximity to the Wulfrun Centre, bus and rail stations, Wolverhampton Interchange and official agreements being signed for ‘Wolverhampton Westside’
