Where to spend summer in Wolverhampton

By bzbeth 23 May 2018

If you're in no rush to leave halls for summer or Wolverhampton is your hometown, we have some great things you can get up to! 


Whether the sun is shining or it's pouring it down, there are plenty of places to spend your summer and they're not going to break the bank either...

West Park
Park Road West, WV1 4PS


You've probably passed this park a million times because it's only a short walk from the city centre and our City campus. If the weather is on your side then get involved in bowls, archery, cricket, go on the boating lake or take your children to the play area. Don't forget a picnic!

Light House
Chubb Buildings, Fryer Street, WV1 1HT


When was the last time you went to the cinema? Not a chain like Cineworld and Odeon, but a small and cosy cinema. This is exactly what the Light House offers so go check out the latest films - with your student discount, tickets are only £4.50! 

Wightwick Manor & Gardens
Bridgnorth Road, Wightwick Bank, WV6 8EE


This hidden gem isn't too far from the city centre but it's somewhere nice and quiet to get away. If you've got children, it's great when the weather is on your side if you sit outside with a picnic and play some games. There is a stable nearby too with a café - time to get exploring! 

David Austin Roses Garden & Tea Room
Bowling Green Lane, WV7 3HB


This has a little bit of everything! You can wander around the grounds in the morning with the others who travel from all over the country to visit the home of English Roses. Make sure you check out the Tea Room after to treat yourself to afternoon tea, it's £20 but you deserve it, right?

Wild Zoological Park
Upper Whittimere Farm, DY7 5EP


You're never too old for the zoo but this is especially perfect for small children, they'll love it! Wild Zoological Park has some amazing reptiles but also animals from all over the world so don't miss the demonstrations where you can actually hold the animals. How brave will you be?

Just because you're not going on holiday this summer doesn't mean you'll be stuck for something to do. There is plenty to do right on your doorstep!
