Welcome to Wolverhampton

Whether you’re exploring historical sights, taking the kids to the farm or walking in the countryside, there’s plenty to see and do near your new home in 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. Other major employers include Wolverhampton City Council, Birmingham Midshires, the University of Wolverhampton, Carillion, Marston's, Chubb Locks and Goodrich Actuation Systems.

Things to do in the area
