With a striking architectural landscape, superb galleries, pretty gardens and sporting events, Wolverhampton has plenty to offer. Art galleries, museums and theaters provide excellent cultural experiences, restaurants serve food from all corners of the globe and traditional pubs present the chance to socialize with locals.

Discover landmark buildings while wandering the streets of Wolverhampton. Edwardian houses, timber-framed buildings and the Prince Albert Statue decorate Queen Square in the heart of the city center.
