Located in the heart of one of Europe’s industrial heartlands, Wolverhampton has a long and proud history of trade and manufacturing, reflected in some of the city’s tourist attractions.
Wolverhampton is a city and metropolitan borough in the West Midlands, England. Historically part of Staffordshire, the city is named after Wulfrun, who founded the town in 985, from the Anglo-Saxon Wulfrūnehēantūn.
The city grew initially as a market town specialising in the woolen trade. In the Industrial Revolution, it became a major centre for coal mining, steel production, lock making and the manufacture of cars and motorcycles.
The economy of the city is still based on engineering, including a large aerospace industry, as well as the service sector.
The City of Wolverhampton is the perfect, centralised location for your business success, offering outstanding national and international reach. Located right at the heart of the UK’s high-speed rail and motorway networks, with air travel easily accessible.
A gateway between the historic Black Country and the beautiful countryside of Shropshire and Staffordshire, while also only 17 miles from the city of Birmingham – Wolverhampton is the natural choice for retail, leisure, office and residential development.
