Wolverhampton is a city in the West Midlands region of England that joins with Birmingham to form the second largest continuous urban area in the UK, with Greater London being the first. The city lies just north-west of Birmingham and has been a very significant economic and commercial centre since the Industrial Revolution and the late 18th century. Key to the city’s progress in the 19th century was its success as a mining area, with major businesses growing up around Wolverhampton’s booming coal, limestone and iron ore industries. In the 21st century, the city’s economy relies in part on the success of its aerospace and service sector industries. Wolverhampton today is very much a modern city with a thriving cultural and commercial life. There are several dozen districts that form part of the larger city, with a ring road encircling the main central area and key local landmarks like the Wolverhampton Civic Hall, St Peter’s Church and parts of the University of Wolverhampton.
