Culture of Wolverhampton. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Wolverhampton The old English city of Wolverhampton dating back to the 10th century is shrouded in many beautiful legends. According to one of the versions, the founder of the city was Lady Wulfuna, and the significant event took place in 985. The town got its name in honor of the founder, and today a monument depicting Lady Wulfuna is one of the city's main attractions. Not far from the monument is magnificent St. Peter's Collegiate Church - a beautiful building that gives a full idea about the architectural features in the Middle Ages. Visitors to the city should definitely explore the interior decoration, which deserves the highest praise.

A huge number of monasteries and churches have been erected in the city since its foundation. However, in the 16th and 17th centuries, Wolverhampton was badly damaged by fires, and a large part of beautiful buildings was destroyed. Much of the old buildings that have managed to survive are located in the historic part of the city. During a walk through the historic district, you can see several beautiful squares, old villas and small churches, each of which has its own unique history. Today, many historic structures are converted into art galleries and museums, so the walk promises to be interesting.
There are also many interesting landmarks in the modern part of the city. In the city center, you will find an art gallery displaying a rich collection of works by contemporary artists. Part of the gallery halls stores vintage paintings. Visitors can see the priceless works of artists of Victorian and Gregorian ages. The gallery often hosts interesting exhibitions where young British artists show their works. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
