Welcome to Wolverhampton

With convenient transport links, lots of employment opportunities and great local amenities, a move to Wolverhampton could be the right choice for you and your family.

A quick history

Wolverhampton dates back to the 10th century when a church and monastery were founded in the local area, encouraging the growth of a new settlement. By the 13th century Wolverhampton was given a charter, and it became a bustling market town.

During Medieval times, industry in the town centred around wool, and by the 18th century Wolverhampton became a stop-off on the road between London and Holyhead. The Industrial Revolution caused a boom in the town’s population, with bicycle and locomotive making becoming popular in the 19th century. In 2001 Wolverhampton became a city, and today it is a thriving shopping destination. 

Business and industry

There are a number of big businesses in and around Wolverhampton, including Jaguar Land Rover’s Engineering Manufacturing Centre.
