somebody who is moving to my city should be aware of our cultural diversity, as it will allow them to interpret the different perspective in the world. Also someone who moves to my cty should be aware of the language that we speak and be able to persevere with people and gain an understanding and respect how different people live their lives.

It is a small city with a lot if small towns. There are many shops and little things to do so you’ll never be bored. To note, there are many big cities near where people will go shopping, to the theatre and dine at posh restaurants. Also, there is an airport nearby.

Wolverhampton’s premier league football club, Wolverhampton Wanderers, has become very successful over the last year. Wolverhampton also brews an extremely well-loved beer at Marston’s Brewery. If you can move past the infamous accent, Wolverhampton is a exceedingly friendly place. Wolverhampton prides itself on being part of the Black Country.

Should you be given the opportunity to move to Wolverhampton, know it is a thriving city centre in which you will find all of your immediate, and not-so-immediate needs; from small, family owned stores, to huge department stores, gin bars, to old-fashioned pubs, fast food restaurants to bespoke gastro dining, Wolverhampton really does have it all. Don’t just expect the unexpected. Expect everything.

Wolverhampton has a notorious reputation for extremely poor schooling establishments, thus it may pay you to consult local statistics if you will need to enrol your children. It should also be noted that unemployment and crime rates are considerably higher than the national average and public transport links are far from reliable.

Wolverhampton is very busy, with very few jobs. The house prices are varied. The schools tend to be oversubscribed although Wolverhampton Local Council have considered building more schools to accommodate pupils on the waiting list. A lot of the retail businesses in the City Centre have closed due to lack of customers.
