Wolverhampton might be dwarfed by its near neighbour Birmingham, but it's far from overshadowed. This is a city with a strong cultural backbone and a fierce civic pride.
Home to the Wolverhampton Wanderers football club since 1889, Molineux is a 31,000 capacity stadium that has hosted England internationals and grand nights of European football.
Another major sporting attraction is Wolverhampton Racecourse, a floodlit venue with an artificial surface. As well as thoroughbred racing, the course is also a great destination for events. The Lady Wulfruna stakes, which takes place each March, is named after Wulfrun, an Anglo-Saxon noblewoman whose name is believed to be the original of Wolverhampton.
There’s plenty of history and culture in Wolverhampton, including a number of storied buildings. Wightwick Manor may well be the most eye-catching - clearly influenced by the Arts and Craft movement and built in the late 19th century. The listed building has William Morris fabrics and wallpaper, and was gifted to the National Trust in 1937. The manor and gardens are open to the public, while art fans can revel in the wonderful Pre-Raphaelite collection, which includes works by Rossetti. More Pre-Raphaelite and Victorian artworks can be seen at the Wolverhampton Art Gallery, which also has fascinating Georgian and Pop Art galleries, as well as significant pieces by notable Midlands’s artists.
The arts aren't neglected in Wolverhampton, with both the Arena Theatre and the Grand Theatre programming an eclectic range of events and shows. The more intimate Arena Theatre is known for its cultural diversity while the Grand Theatre, open since 1894, can boast Charlie Chaplin, Henry Irving, Winston Churchill and Michael Caine among the luminaries that have graced its stage. It maintains a lively reputation with a breadth of offerings from pantomime to musicals and ballet.
Surrounded by glorious British countryside, visitors to this part of the world will find much to enchant and entrance. Car hire in Wolverhampton makes seeing all of this possible, and makes all the charm of the Black Country accessible.
Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
