Wolverhampton offers history and culture in the Midlands

If you want to live in the midlands, but do not fancy having to live in one of the big metropolitan areas such as Birmingham, then why not turn your attention to its near neighbour, Wolverhampton, which has much to offer in the way of rivalry to the big city?

Wolverhampton is a city which is over 1,000 years old, steeped in history and culture, and it would make the ideal place to live for someone who wants the opportunity to work in a city, while also being able to take in some of the areas culture as an extra curricular activity.

The city is located to the north-east of Birmingham, not too far away, meaning that even if you do not want to live in the bigger city, it can still be an attractive prospect for a commute from Wolverhampton, with travel links between the two being strong both via road and rail.

If arts and culture are your thing, then looking for property for sale in Wolverhampton would be a good move. The city is well known as a hub of cultural activity, with its art house cinema, the Slade Rooms and its University, which is known as an art college, and could attract students to the area. It also plays host to an art gallery.

In terms of places of historical interest, Wolverhampton also has many historic areas which new residents may love visiting when they have recently moved into the area.

The city plays host to the St peter's Collegiate church, which is the oldest building in the entire city, having first been constructed in the 13th century. For those who like quirky history, they can also find the UK's first set of traffic lights in Wolverhampton, which are still painted with black and white striped poles, as they were originally.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801298792-ADNFCR
