- Wolverhampton – The end of the world?
I visited briefly whilst deciding which photography degree course to attend as a mature student. I’d made up my mind it wouldn’t be Wolverhampton before I even got off the train.
No offence to anyone. FWIW I ended up in Sunderland, which is pretty much a smaller version of the above… But at least Sunderland has the saving grace of having some glorious countryside nearby to escape into.Posted 5 years ago
I live on the outskirts, and okay its pretty much like any town in that it has its good and bad, but generally it has been here for a long time and there is some very good architecture to be seen, good art gallery, church etc…
and the countryside is right on the doorstep, shropshire, south staffs, worcs, ironbridge all in easy riding distance…
its not bad at all compared to a lot of places, its always had a bad rap, but i don’t see it.
see…. i could show you the crap, but i think your seeing that all to easily anyway..?

Wolverhampton’s curse is that out the train window you see its arse as you arrive. Its true of most places that you don’t see their most attractive aspects from the railway line but even seconds before you roll into the station theres madmax dereliction. Its like taking the train to ESP Powdercoaters 🙂
Wolves isn’t a terribly remarkable town but its just a town, thats what towns generally are like, but that train approach really colours peoples view of it.Posted 5 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Best thing about Wolverhampton is the Civic Hall.
Brilliant concert venue, best in the Midlands. The sound in there is just great. Seen some ace bands there over the years.
And the locals are spot on. 😉
Tettenall is a nice place, some really nice places on that side.Posted 5 years ago
