It's Not So Grim Up T' North

Despite living in Birmingham all my life but it was only last year i scraped up the £3.90 return fare to Wolverhampton and it's certainly a been train worth jumping. Compared to Birmingham the centre has better architecture, a better layout, a smattering of independent shops (which B'ham is in desperate need of), some great/cheap cafe's and some cracking pubs (noteably cheesy Goth bar The Giffard Arms with it's coffin shaped tables!).

Suprisingly the local lingo is quite easy to pick up and the air isn't thick with coal dust. Heartily recommended.
