Football is a big deal and the city is fiercely proud of their team the Wolverhampton Wanderers or ‘Wolves’ and its definitely worth a visit to the stadium to watch them play. If nothing else, get to know the home colours (orange and black) so that you don’t have to point at the telly and ask “Who’s playing?” when they’re on.
Nothing makes you forget your exam stress like lazing about in a green grassy park. They’ve also got a boating lake, so grab some friends for a fun afternoon out.
Wandering around this Victorian manor and gardens will give you a chance to slow your brain down and enjoy your surroundings for a few hours without any other distractions.
If you really need to get away, don’t forget that you’re actually not that far from beautiful countryside. Pack a bag and a tent and take the day off.

Cheap accommodation in...
Cheap accommodation in centre. Mander centre has plently of shops. Cheap restaurants, plenty of take aways. Not many places to go on a night out, not much of a night life, but wetherspoons is ok. Plently of transport links to Birmingham running all day. Unfortunately Wolves has a lot of rough sleepers and drug users. Area is rough, not safe to walk around by your self at night. read more

The City is very small but has every facility. I shifted from London to Wolverhampton, obviously, there is a big difference but still its a good experience until now read more
Mander and Wulfrun are...
Mander and Wulfrun are pretty s***ty, but Birmingham is a twenty minute train away ;) Public transport network is good, albeit difficult to understand for a newcomer at times. Lots of places to eat out, with some superb pub grub available. I've been told the nightlife is pretty good - apparently faces is great. Cheap to live - I shopped for one person on as little as £12 per week - usual spend was £25. read more
Nice and affordable,...
Nice and affordable, with accommodation and food (and drinks) to survive the week it costs less than £200 which compared to other places I have looked at its not half bad. Also alot of restraints and nice places, but not much green area. Also go out for just a week and you've seen everything wolves night life has to offer, not many new places to explore or places which differentiate from others. read more
It is very cheap to live...
It is very cheap to live in Wolverhampton, there are a few restaurants readily available that are very decent. The night life is slightly poor, and the cost to travel to Birmingham where the nightlife is better is pretty expensive, especially the taxi home after going out. Shopping is okay but you can catch a train to Birmingham where the shopping is outstanding for £5 return. read more
