I HAVE LIVED IN THIS DEPRESSING DUMP ALL OF MY LIFE AND FIND IT THE WORST PLACE ON THE FACE OF THIS PLANET TO LIVE IN!LACK OF FACILITIES AND AMMENITIES MEANS NO STIMULATION OR INTEREST OR INCLINATION TO GO AND SHOP THERE! I LIVE LESS THAN A MILE AWAY FROM THE SHOPS AND MARKET (HA!) BUT IT'S SOOO CONVENIENT AS I'M JUST YARDS AWAY FROM THE MAIN BUS SERVICE FOR THE MERRY HILL SHOPPING CENTRE AND CAN EASILY GET ON THE METRO TO GO TO BRUMIGAM!MY ADVICE TO ANYONE CONSIDERING VISITNG THIS DUMP OF A DOGHOLE IS TO KEEP GOING...DON'T STOP TO WASTE YOUR TIME MONEY AND RESOURCES HERE...IT'S DEFINATELY NO MANS LAND AND WELL WORTH FORGETTING ABOUT!!!!!

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.

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.

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 ... Read the complete review

Wolverhampton then. What is there apart from smog, a football ground and a load of students? Well quite a lot I would say. I came to Wolverhampton to go to university. Well, I transferred here from a far, far worse place than this! So what is there then. I'll begin with the obvious, Shopping! The ... Read the complete review

I’ll start by saying Wolverhampton has a pretty bad reputation; it often seems to come up as the butt of many jokes but does it actually deserve any of the criticism? In a word, No I don’t personally think it does. I moved to the town just over a year ago now to study at the university. I was actually dreading ... Read the complete review
