Wolverhampton (England) ... Staffordshire. In 2002 the local authority area had a population of 239,358; the Urban Area had a population of 251,462, which makes it the 13th largest city in England. The city was named after Lady Wulfruna, who founded the town in 985: its name came from Anglo-Saxon Wulfrūnehēantūn = "Wulfrūn's high or principal enclosure or farm". Many buildings and firms in Wolverhampton are named after her. Its name is often abbreviated to "W'ton" or "Wolves". The city council's motto is "Out of darkness, cometh light". The United Kingdom government announced on December 18, 2000 that Wolverhampton would be granted city status, making it the first "Millennium City" and one of three.
Newest Review: ... the workshop of the world and Britain's industry was centred in the Black Country, Wolverhampton was a very wealthy place: entreprenurs gifted schools, hospitals, parks, an art gallery and various other public works to the city they lived in. A lot of West Midlands industrialists moved to Tettenhall in victorian times and built very large houses, which set the tone for the area. Tettenhall ... more

Interesting to read these reviews about Wolverhampton. Wolverhampton like most places is a town of two halves. It was somewhat unfairly listed by one travel guide as the 5th worst city in the world. I have been to some far worse cities. Wolverhampton has its problems: rough industrial, dirty areas; it has ugly 1960's tower block architecture; it has a big crime and drug problem; a big unemployment problem; the city centre has beggars and some of the shops are very poor. Frankly as a resident of Wolverhampton I don't go into the city centre at night and I avoid it during the day. The heyday of Wolverhampton's nightclub scene has been and gone. I won't dwell ...

Ive lived just outside Wolverhampton all of my life. Two words spring to mind....dirty and dull. I'm 19 and wouldnt recommend the nightlife round here- more trouble than its worth. The Civic Centre and Little Civic play host to some popular names and there are some talented bands coming out of Wolverhampton. Nice art gallery, average shopping centre, average eating places.

Wolverhampton is not a place I would like to visit often. Yes, it has had millions pumped into it in recent times and the night life is very lively indeed - if you like this sort of thing. But..there's a side to Wolverhampton that cannot be ignored: crime, to the point where one can almost taste the atmosphere of rowdiness especially during evenings and weekends. It has become a haven for voilent crime and locals are ever fearful when they enter the town and its surroundings, i.e. the Park Lane area just down the road. I recently moved away because of such issues. Despite the large student base I do not feel that Wolverhampton is exactly ... Read the complete review

I have lived in Wolverhampton for all my life, and i think it is one of the most miserable towns in this country. It is dirty, smelly, has little for young people to do, and is run by a very elitist group of people. In short, Wolverhampton sucks. About the only thing going for Wolverhampton is the nightlife, whcih in recent years has improved somewaht, more so with the opening of the Litten Tree, Yates and the Canal. If you cannot be bothered to go to Birmingham, then Wolverhampton is not a bad place to be of a nightime, but other than that, it is pretty grim. The shopping facilities at Wolverhampton are again pretty abysmal, with the best shop in the ... Read the complete review
