Welcome to Wolverhampton signOriginally a market town, Wolverhampton grew massively during the Industrial Revolution. Coal mining and steel production was followed by car manufacture in the 20th century with the economy today still focused on engineering. If you live in or around Wolverhampton or you’re visiting from further afield there’s plenty to do and see.

At DW Windows, our head office and showroom are only a stone’s throw away from the centre of Wolverhampton. We’ve worked on many properties across the city and have lots of local knowledge about the buildings, history, and people from the area. To give you some ideas to get out and about this summer, here are five things to do in Wolverhampton.

1. Visit Bantock House Museum and Park

If you’re interested in Edwardian history, Bantock House is the place to visit. Set amongst 48 acres of parkland, it is a snapshot of a bygone era. Learn about the Bantock family who called it home and marvel at the Arts and Crafts influenced interior design which perfectly reflects the style of the period. Entry is free and there is an on-site café offering refreshments seven days a week.

2. Get inspired at Wolverhampton Art Gallery

From the classic to the contemporary, there’s something for everyone at the Wolverhampton Art Gallery. Explore the changing artistic movements from over 300 years of creative expression in our fully refurbished galleries. Entry is free for all the family with a range of activities for all age groups.

3. Quench your thirst at Bank’s Park Brewery

A guided tour of the Wolverhampton Bank’s Brewery is the perfect day out, especially for ale lovers. Learn how your favourite tipple is produced and sample some amber nectar in a fully working brewery. The Victorian park brewery has been the home of Bank’s ale production since 1875 and is a truly iconic location.

4. Get some fresh air at Wightwick Manor and Gardens

This delightful mock Tudor National Trust property is a true hidden gem. The spectacular landscaped gardens are equalled only by the host of stunning period features on display inside and outside this early Victorian manor house.

5. Go football crazy at the Wolves MuseumWolverhampton football logo on a flag

Wolves were once one of the greats of English football and the Wolves museum perfectly reflects this, managing to be both historically interesting and in touch with the modern footballing era.
