Described as a lively and vibrant town
Walsall is a growing town with over 269,000 residents. In the 1970’s a new town centre was built and since then Walsall has had many urban regeneration programs. The council has invested in improving the town centre, Gigaport and Waterfront areas. A hospital, the college, part of the University of Wolverhampton, a large Tesco store and new housing have been built. Plans include new investment across the Borough, for example in a new Primark store in the town centre, a cinema and a college sport hub.
The town also boasts a modern and contemporary art gallery based on the Waterfront next to the canal and Walsall’s Arboretum, which is full of rare trees, shrubs and has over 1 million visitors per year. In spite of the external perception of the borough, over a third of the area is open park and farmland.
Walsall’s economy is famous for its leather trade but is based on many industries, such as coal mining to metal working, saddle manufacturing, small hardware, plastics, electronics, chemicals and aircraft parts, etc. The cost of living in Walsall is lower than other parts of the UK and slightly less than Birmingham.
