What to do in and near Wolverhampton town centre ?
If you're visiting the place to catch up with friends at the University, you'll probably end up at Lichfield Street and Queen Street pubs and eateries. Otherwise (and in fine weather) you may want to check out the spacious steam era charm of Wightwick Manor and its gardens, located ten minutes away from the city centre.
Another wonderful little attraction close to the city centre is the Grand Theatre, which rivals some of the best London theatres. It's highly recommended to enjoy a show at the Grand Theatre before it hits the West End and tickets get hard to come by. If you're fascinated by the Victorians, Bantock House Museum will recreate the living spaces of illustrious local Victorians for you.
Enjoy a jog along the canals or picnic in the peaceful and green Smestow Valley nature reserve. Later, try out the delicious British, Cantonese, Australian, Indian, Thai and Italian restaurants around the city centre. You could also guzzle your free half pints of cask ale at the famous Banks's Brewery.
Go on a shopping spree at the smart shopping arcades of the city centre, around the Queen Square fountain, before you head back to your bed and breakfast rooms at the end of the day.
Cheap Places to Stay - It's easy to find a b&b or hotel room !
It's easy to find cheap hotels and B&B's within close proximity to Wolverhampton attractions, even though it is the thirteenth largest city in England. You can put up at a charming Victorian style bed and breakfast near the Grand Theatre or find peace in a stately Georgian mansion turned hotel a few miles into the countryside.
There are also a few modern buildings offering affordable suites with modern comforts. The choices of accommodation are as varied as the tariffs. With excellent trains and road connectivity, the location is never a big issue, unless you need medical care at the New Cross Hospital in Wednesfield to the east of the centre.
Regardless of the size of your group or your budget, you can find a suitable, updated place to call your home away from home for the duration of your stay.
Places to stay in the city center are close to the University, local nightlife and the Mander Shopping Centre. The railway and bus station are also nearby.
