Wolverhampton is situated in West Midlands. Although a relatively small town, Wolverhampton has much to offer visitors. Visitors will certainly want to stop by Wolverhampton Art Gallery, which is open to the public for free. A Victorian park, West Park, is also located in Wolverhampton and features a lake and conservatory. Other attractions in Wolverhampton include Moseley Old Hall, Boscobel House and Wrightwick Manor. The Church of St. Peter, which dates back to the 14th century, is also a must see while in Wolverhampton. Of course, no visit would be complete without catching a game at Molineaux Stadium.
Wolverhampton is a large city, with an equally substantial number of landmarks and special places of interest which the visiting tourist can sample and enjoy at their leisure, with one of the most distinguishing features of the city being the beautiful architecture of its buildings. Even if you are not especially religious, the awe-inspiring and majestic beauty of the St. Peter's Collegiate Church will take the breath away of even the most diehard of atheists. The Church can trace its roots all the way back to the 15th century, and since its "birth" it has enjoyed a remarkable history indeed, one of the most noticeable features of the Church is the rather large lion which is carved from stone which is strategically placed at the steps upon which the bishop will ascend. The rationale behind this rather unusual choice of decor is to protect the bishop from evil spirits!
If you want to sample the somewhat eventful history of the city of Wolverhampton then you may want to take a visit to Moseley Old Hall. At first glance, and without any appreciation for the severe religious segregation and persecution that existed in the 17th century, Moseley Old Hall appears to be the typical, bog standard English country manor, quaint, picturesque but rather dull. Moseley Old Hall was the hiding place of King Charles II, in order to give the King sufficient time and space to more effectively plan and decide upon an escape plan.
