Visit to Wolverhampton

In Albufeira, Pictures from England on October 3, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged: , ,

On Sunday last week I took quick trip from Birmingham to Wolverhampton on the West Midlands metro light rail. I was hoping to see some scenery but bad idea. The track runs in cuttings much of the way so most of what I saw was trees.

The West Midlands metro is the only light rail or tram I have been on that does not have ticket machines at the stops. If you don’t have a pass or can´t use ‘tap and pay’ on your bank card, you buy a ticket from a conductor on board. Just we did on buses maybe 30 or 40 years ago.

Amid Wolverhampton’s nightmare of ring roads and modernity there are some bits worth seeing.

There are some decent pubs in the centre and I was pleased to find Enville ales on sale at one and a decent pint of Marston’s 61 for just £2,90 at another.
