  • A mecca for plebisophorouses;Bank's bitter. The Plebs opera House, St Peter's church. The library and art Gallery( The Louvre of The Black Country) The betting shops and above all Beaties; a Wilfrunian attempt at rivaling Harrods but quite adequate for the needs of the average YamYam.

  • the people , the grass, the atmosphere, the clubs and the pubs and the cinemas and all the people in wolverhamton generally have a wicked time so get you rself down here bcaz u will love da area! its cool
  • where theirs skaters rockers ect their isnt many shit head townies
  • Wolverhampton Speedway at Monmore Green Stadium every Monday night from March to October
  • leaving school in bushbury and moving to tipton (yeah i know not much better but a improvement all the same) and of course my family who still live down ther
  • the way i moved away to bristol when i was 7 and every time i return (every couple of months due to family being there) i get goose bumps, theres nothing like the feeling you get when you return to your place of birth, i love the place, can't say exactly why but i do
  • the punk scence & punk people the skaters the concerts
  • The cheap beer in the Moon under Water. the cheap women in the Civic on a friday night, The Pork Joint, what a god send. All my old mates. The fact that it has not become a boom boom dance music area. Dave Cockfield, Peter Munslow, Martin Parkes, and all the girls ,
  • errrrmmmmmm......nothing really unless you like grey, miserable towns with a shit council, shit selection of clubs and wanky christmas lights.
  • Great, lively place to live, plenty of stuff to do nearby, and used to be the biggest town in Europe before it recently became a city!
  • Heroes, Neil Jackson, me & thats about it
  • some nice pussy in wolverhampton!
  • For someone who has not lived in Wolves since I was 6, I still love the place everytime I go back. It has a nostalgic charm, you can tell it has seen better times, but it is always trying to improve. The fact that it is quite multi cultural is a plus for the town. The row boats at West Park are cool, even if the Pond is half deep in bird shit.
  • The way massive fights erupt out side atlantis (opposite police station) and you never see any coppers come out to sort it.
  • People who give a damn about being themselves finding a place to meet up
  • It's so much better than people think. There's a fantastic mix of people and a real sense at the moment that things are on the up. We're a brand new city, there's a kicking nightlife, the uni gets stronger, our newspaper is the biggest selling local paper in the country.
  • The people need I say more !!
  • The parks outside the main centre (Bantock, or Tettenhall).
  • The racecourse.
  • home
  • What-you-see-is-what-you-get. I worked in London for a while, and I always felt relieved when I returned home, away from the pretencious wannabees, and the overpriced piss-water I had to drink. In Wolves, people are pretty straightforward and generally laid-back. The town centre is buzzing at the weekend, and has come on miles in recent years. You don't have far to walk to the next bar.
  • The best thing about wolverampton?(That is how to say it) - Banks's bitter. If you drink enough then life in the town begins to feel bearable
  • Banks's Mild. And its price. And the fact you can drink it until it comes out of your pores and still not have a hangover the next morning.
  • Well sign posted to get OUT!
  • Seriously good looking women out on the town on at the weekend, plenty of nightlife and good Indian restaurants.
  • Wolverhampton has got a high percentage of freaks so anything goes!
  • The People!! Wolverhampton is a melting pot of many cultures and beliefs - a microcosm of Britain as a whole I feel....
  • (My entry is the one below with Paignton in the text) I have to confess that I actually quite like W-ton now, having lived in crappy Devon for 2 years, and it has a good range of shops and a decent town centre. The metro is good, it's only 20 mins from B-ham and should become the new Millenium City because it's far better than Brighton & Hove !!! (Don't visit Paignton - it's a c**pheap of a place !!!)
  • Decent rail links. If you get tired of the local library you can join the massive University library as an "external borrower", for about £35 (the price of a few art books).
  • It's hard to believe but wolverhampton is very cosmopolitan with a varied community and influx of students, so you can be whoever you want to be without too many problems. Indentity lives on, cloning should die.
  • The Civic
  • the best thing about wolvo... perfectly placed for both country and city persuits, but the best thing ever is how endearingly crappy it is... everyone cringes when you tell them where you're from but as soon as they take one look at the shimmering tack of the town centre, they all fall completely, hopelessly in love.
  • The Outta limits club
  • The air vents at the back of the Civic Centre provide hours of lasting entertainment if you come equipped with an old plastic bottle. Watch as your rubbish is whooshed up and suspended in the air...
  • The best things about Wolverhampton are those that are never appricated by those who have always lived there. Three years ago i moved away to telford, but i cant wait to come back.
  • Fairly cheap beer in most pubs
  • Midlands Metro rapid transit system - i.e. its now even quicker to get out of wolverhampton
  • The best thing about Wolverhampton is that it is nowhere near as bad as you think it is going to be. I came here 15 years ago and kinda stayed here.
  • Banks's Mild Ale and Indian Food
  • The beauty of Wolverhampton lies in its innate 70s ness, its terminally crap yet rich football club and T. J. Hughes department store for bad taste clothes under five pounds. What else can I say? Countryside only 10 minutes away, a lot of cack nightclubs for shoes, notoriously inconsistent door policies in all the pubs and bars over from the theatre (take some shoes if you want a late drink in the theatre bar) and the Light Bar now charges you for the pleasure of getting in and having incredibly loud music forced upon you while you snake over to the bar through all the people who still insist on having pony tails and still drink Sol. Love it. Oh well, that's all I know, just don't hang round the fruit machines in the University at lunchtime, you'll have an eye out (nearly).
  • I lived in Wolverhampton from 1976 -1981, till i emigrated to South Africa. It was'nt the best of places but I am proud to say I lived there and next year I am taking my South African family back to Wolverhampton to see some of my roots. Up the Wolves !
  • Wolves is right next door to Shropshire which is absolutely beautiful.
