When I worked in town, this was my favourite lunch time haunt. Sadly, I don't any longer but it's still a great place, some good investment recently looks good. Great variety of exhibitions.

This is a lovely place to spend some time, with some excellent exhibitions and art to ponder over. The gallery is receiving a lot of attention over its Pop Art exhibitions and this is a remarkable exhibition to visit, with Warhol's and Lichtenstein's adorning the walls. There are a number of interesting sculptures as well. Well worth a visit.

This is an outstanding collection which is tucked away. The museum has carefully thought about making their space accessible to different groups - it looks excellent for young families. Lovely cafe, friendly staff, inspiring art.

It's not well known that Wolverhampton has one of the finest collections of Pop Art.... And a constantly changing set of exhibits. But I visit weekly to use the wonderful cafe upstairs - with free guest WiFi - which has to be among the best in town. I go for coffee and cake, many go for lunch. No hesitation in... More

We had a very enjoyable trip to the Wolverhampton Art gallery to see the Utagawa Hiroshige Japanese landscape print exhibition. Whilst there we also viewed the Victoria and Georgian galleries which were very pleasant. The cafe at the gallery was a nice place to rest and have some tea and food.
