Discover local history and culture
If you’re interested in the beer-making process (and the subsequent drinking of it), be sure to pay a visit to Banks’s Brewery. You’ll learn all about how the beer is brewed, and be rewarded with three free half pints of cask ale. If historical attractions are more your thing, there’s a breadth of significant houses and museums in the area.
Bantock House Museum is set in 43 acres of parkland. Not only can you wander through the gardens, but you can travel back in time to learn more about how the house was during Edwardian times, with temporary exhibitions covering several local and social topics in Wolverhampton’s history. There’s also a playground and nature trail. Moseley Old Hall – famed for being the hiding place of King Charles II after the Battle of Worcester – is well worth a visit too.
Exploring the city
With over 600 shops to browse (250 of which are independent), head to the Mander Centre, which is placed in the heart of the city. You’ll find high street favourites as well as high end brands, and a great selection of spots to grab a bite to eat in. There’s also the Wulfrun Shopping Centre, where you can find several stores boasting pocket-friendly prices.
