MID, Wolverhampton

Sunday, August 28, 2022

Good access to city center and shops, also very good public transport network. Renting prices are pretty good, similar or lower than most other cities I've lived in, just make sure you get a hakf-decent landlord. Fairly quiet compared to most inner-city areas, even at nights and weekends. Green areas like West Park are pretty cool and chill, well within walking distance.
