The Worst Things in Wolverhampton, West Midlands*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Wolverhampton.

The Worst Things
  • I got raped in the University Campus.
  • Including all other worst aspects is its Taxi service called ABC countdown. If you wish to talk most arrogant and incompetent people call them 01902 333 333. The can turn your best mood in worst without much effort. As they are already master of this skill. AARGH :'(
  • Well im amazed we have a page on the worst things in Wolverhampton and theres about 4 posts about some off licence in Bilston.Seriously id have to be pissed 24/7 to live in Wolverhampton(including the dive thats bilston),its awful populated by people who think stabbing someone is a normal way to act.Yobs 10yo and upwards acting like theyre big time gangsters,the whole of Heathtown needs flattening.Truly a dreadful place
  • what bullshit about the off licence in bilston its a clean and best shop around bilston open late the prices are fair its not ant dirty corner shop and people who complain get your self a good job that pays and not stay on benifits....
  • Everything within the city boundary.
  • Inhabitants - most of them still looking for that elusive brain cell
  • The worst thing about Wolverhampton is dumb brain dead people come here who are blatant scrubbers who carnt afford to stay any where nice and stay in the shit whole areasike pendeford and reins or Heath town yeh these are shit whole kind of like the whole of London full of scrubbers and imageants. But hey that's why u and they are there cuz your broke ass scrubbers everywhere else is safe as. And by the way u thick wankers Bilston is not Wolverhampton. Bilston is a shit whole and to the people who moan about payin over £1.20 for silver rizla. Your the people I'm talkin about get off your ass get a job and off the dole and you might be able to afford them and live in a nicer part off town.
  • Says it all really. http://wolverhamptonisshit.co.uk/
  • Re Bilston Beers or whatever its called, YUP i agree never go there its a absolute rip off, the till is even hidden behind the counter so you cant even see what the woman is typing in there, i think she jus decides to charge you what they fancy plus they charge £1.29 for silver rizlas and 50p for a bag of crisps probably the most expensive Offy in history avoid like the plague.
  • Dont ever go to the off license few doors away from Pefect Pizza in Bilston high street, its called Bilston beers or something like that, its known by locals as the rip off shop the prices are stupidly high, they charge 70p for a mars bar and £1.99 for a 2 litre of pop, Cigarettes are also the most expensive in Bilston, to take the piss even more the very thick woman who works there will usually try and shortchange you too while shes on the phone and being ignorant to you you have been warned!
  • Wolverhampton is the worst place I have ever lived, GET OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN. The general population has the collcetive IQ of a Banana chomping Poo slinger. Talk about common, its the scrapings of the barel.
  • Anything you can't stand to see, hear, smell, feel or think about 1st thing in the morning
  • Wolverhampton it'self, it's the worst place I've ever lived in, the people are unfriendly (except my neighbour)ignorant and just plain dumb. It's full of imigrants, thieves and people with an IQ lower than their shoe size. I've lived here for 8 years and it's the biggest mistake of my life. I cant get a good enough job to save to get out of this shithole
  • - Pervy chavs. - Some of the horrible, racist people on here. - The stupidity of people from Wolverhampton - when my girlfriend mentioned that she is studying for a PhD, she was greeted with the response 'is that like an NVQ or sommat?'. - You dont feel safe walking around in daylight.
  • wolverhampton- part of the list of homophobic west midlands locations
  • 'Theres always loads of police and wardent patroling the streets.' Not where I live pal, you're lucky. Don't take it for granted.
  • full of forreigners and weirdos. Too many chavs and perverts walking the streets, also too many prostitutes around. Loads of plastic girls with 10 inches of foundation and skirts right up their ass. Too many bosnians/cossovans taking over the place, and taking our jobs, houses etc. Oh and i hate the maccies boys(these 'popular' pretty boys/chavs, ugly cunts :)
  • The hostile atmosphere. Returning to Wolverhampton after a vacation is the worst feeling. Drunken louts, ignorant chavs and nosy "curtain twitcher" neighbours who all seem bewildered and amused by anything/anyone remotely cultured. Sleazy men who think it's perfectly acceptable to attempt to "make conversation" with a passing female in the street. Fat, greasy neanderthal women, pushing prams filled with obese, sausage-roll-eating toddlers. Nightlife: Slappers.
  • As for English well the locals dont as much speak the language they chew on it and spit it out.
  • An unusually high % of Fugly people, The high amount of crime, The place is unsafe, Its dull grim and very depressing. Too many Smack heads and prostitutes. Too many Foreigners. Too Dangerous to go out outside at night, too many stubborn closed minded fools. The place is like a circus, full of freques and clowns of the not very nice type. Its almost like having a mixture of downs syndrome people mixed with flamidamide. Mix in a blender for 20 minutes and then add the elephant man and thats what you local person looks like.
  • Being forced to live in this hellish place, death seems like a nice holiday after spending 6 months here.
  • Too many of the big nosed, square headed, Leather Coat wearing, Purse stealing, brand new mobile phone carrying asylum seekers.
  • Foreigners, pissed up twats and chavs. 'Hard' lads pissed with their mates that shit themselves when they're on their own.
  • WOLVERHAMPTON=SHIT HOLE but thats y i luv it =]
  • CHAVS, OCEANA!!!
  • the chavs
  • Too many Asylum Seekers the Town is full of the Scum and they are usually wearing Leather Coats have Square Heads and Huge Noses. Gills Chip Shop at the end of Bilston High Street avoid at all costs unless you enjoy having Food Poisoning and the Squirts for 3 days.
  • the place is as clean as an unflushed toilet
  • Wolverhampton itself. Horrible, rude, aggressive, ignorant people. I've lived here for 30 years and can't stand the place. The only things that keep me here are my family and my girlfriend. I've lived near blakenhall, Low hill, Whitmore Reans and Bilston. Need I say more.
  • the redevelopment is going to cause massive delays everywere we dont need loads of the same shops. on cleveland street the shops are specialist we need to keep them
  • The road into Wolvo
  • Theres always loads of police and wardent patroling the streets.
  • All the fucking kids hanging round, homeless people trying to steal your happy meal, and the lack of talent.
  • Friday Nights!
  • Usual drunken yobs ruining it for everybody else.
  • The lack of decent jobs. No creative industries.
  • atlantis
  • soon the council are knocking down half of wolverhampton to turn it into another shopping area that is to expensive to rent . all your favourite shop will be gone and replaced with coffee shops and flats . if you need any more info look on the council planning list , the areas to be bulldozed is cleveland street and all the way up to wilkos please send in a letter and tell them you dont want this to happen cheers
  • The overpriced music shops in town do my head in, all of their prices are just too high compared to the out of twn places i go to like soundmasters and Petes Guitar workshop in finchfield.
  • Trendys
  • trendy stuff
  • 10 percent of Wolves residents.
  • our Accent
  • Wolverhampton should be the next place that Al-Qaeda bomb if you ask me. I lived there for 24 years and boy am I glad I don't live there anymore. It's not the town so much, parts of it are quite attractive, it's the scumbags that inhabit it. It's all well and good refurbishing the mAnder Centre, but it will have to be filled with 5 shops to satisfy the scrubbers of the town.GAP couldn't even stay open that long because the tramps in the town will only buy their clothes from 'ranjits buy one get 12 free bonanza' AS for the nightlife, well, if rubbing shoulders with ratboys with bumfluff on their chins and slappers in their cheap polyester ranjits dresses toots your whistle then this is the place! Newcastle has got a contender for slags going out in sub-zero temeratures without coats! By the way, clubs in Wolverhampton think its cool to play 'Come On Eileen' and not in a post-ironic way either. Say no more!
  • The lack of any real sophistication, too much is bog standard in every way including many of the paintings on view at the art gallery. The abuse of spoken English in a vulgar way
  • ring road
  • the mander centre
  • TOWN IS FULL OF SMELLY MUSLIMS, ASIANS AND BLACKS
  • all the wolverhamton girls cant keep there legs shut, and too many crack heads and too many weird shops and not enough good shops,some weirdo's most people,no girls have respect 4 demselves and they think by shagging the boys they will win love and a relation ship WARNING! GIRLS some are just taking u for da ride and call u a shag behind your back to the boys know matter how much the boy says he wont tell anybody he always do's so dont trust just anyoneif you rdumb emouth to give it away then u gotta have brains and use them example if u shag em they think that your jsu a slag and that they can have u anytime do things like that with a boy u care and have feelings for not for someone u know but dont realy talk of just mates or just any one try and push them away
  • the grebos by the man on the horse The bad ares aka whitmore reans, heathtown etc
  • Wolf FM - after suffering this for up to 6 hours a day, I have decided it rots your brain faster than heroin. If I wanted to listen to the same music all day, I'd get a CD !!!
  • Pendeford - don't go there unless you're armed with a knife, baseball bat, rottweiler and a shotgun. Gotta be one of the worst areas in the country. There's a sign near Safeways that says they are trying to impove Dovecotes - my advice: BURN IT TO THE GROUND !!! That's the only way you'll improve Dovecotes. Pendeford Park is just Dovecotes with private houses. Stay away from here unless it's absolutely necessary.
  • theirs some really shitty places skaters should't walk through on there own u'll be raped 6 times by the same guys
  • muggers, thieves, unemployed asylum seekers touching up girls in the town centre etc.
  • Everybody looks the same. If you are an outsider to Wolverhampton you will need to blend in or get beaten up. If you are a boy, it is advised that you invest in a pair of Rockports, some Moschino jeans, YSL jumper (or Kickers jumper) Ben Sherman shirt showing over the neck of jumper and a short, gelled-to-death hairstyle. If you are a girl, the idea is pretty much the same, except you need to swap the Moschino jeans for leggings and your hair should be scraped back into 5 individually coloured scrunchies.At the weekend, girls will need to wear a triangle of material from Topshop as a dress, without a coat and 12 pairs og gold,hoop earrings.
  • So called "Wolverhamptoner's" running the place down, if its so bad leave. Glad to see some of the people who are moaning have allready left.
  • Wolverhampton, do you need any explanation?
  • Dovecotes estate (Pendeford) - four miles west of the town centre. Don't go here unless you have to, it is seriously riffy and full of people on the dole. There are also rottweilers left, right and centre and several shootings over the last few weeks. This is one place you do NOT want to go in W-ton !!!!!
  • The litter and Heathtown (much the same really).
  • MORETON COMMUNITY SCHOOL BUSHBURY this place has been going so long i can't remeber but the sooner i forget that place the better
  • trendys old folks complaining
  • The groups of lads that throw bottles on the nights in Town. The continuous supply of tossers that make noises at you and start fights. Dog rough Girls everywhere. Reminiscents of the things I hated about school
  • no nice men!
  • people like the immature persons that have discrminated against and ridiculed those that hang around the black horse because they are different. Did you know that greibo actually means fashionable? well you wouldn't would you. this is what is so crap about wolves its full of arrogant single minded nobodies. unfortunatley thats what gives the rest of us a bad name. thanx. just be thankful that there are people willing to try and be different and don't just follow the crowd. as i said before, nobodies.
  • MANDER CENTRE, DAMN IT!
  • Some parts of Wolverhampton look really grimy and orrible, and u sometimes have to be careful when walking about during the early hours of the morning.
  • The giffard, the sky club & my ex
  • not enough nice pussy in wolverhampton!
  • You can't do much on Sundays.
  • Never use City Cars, as taxis as one of the drivers punched my mate in the face.
  • The masses of trendies. 15 year olds with kids wearing Adidas.
  • Most of the deprived (or is that depraved?) east side of town.
  • Williams Holdings The Far East - Ask anyone who works at Goodyear or Chubbs
  • Wolves stook in Division 1! Most of the streets leading out of the town centre, have too many old empty premises, which need to be refurbished, and opened up to provide bars and nightlife in other parts of the town. The town generally needs a bit of a facelift.
  • The University - where I work, and get paid to type all this kinda stuff cus there's nothing else to do.
  • Well, Christmas is almost upon us and what better way for Wolverhampton Council to celebrate the festivities than hanging speakers on every lampost or bollard churning out a non-stop mix of pathetic carols sung (wailed) by local school kids. When you're comin out of the pub it sounds well freaky. Another thing that gets my goat is the, um, wild goat of Whitmore Reans that can often be seen on Peace Green (where animals still have graising rights) munching away merrily. There is also a pack of dogs that patrol the streets in the morning between 4.30am and about 7ish All of the dogs are fairly friendly except this one rabble rousing Jack Russell who never fails to fire the rest of the bunch up into a flurry of teeth and claws.
  • WWFC - an organisation that typifies the aspirations of the residents. Its not that the club is going down the pan so much as it is busily going nowhere. The nearest the fans get to celebration is when we sing over and over - 'We are Wolves' - nuff said really
  • The miserable weather, all the time! Everybody's miserable stinking attitudes, too much bad vibes. No classy women and I've been through all the bad ones.
  • Blast off should be banned!
  • Everyone thinking you should have a Brummie accent.
  • The cost of the council tax. It is extortionate!!?? It bewilders me how they get away with it! Not to mention the fact that when you go into town you then have to pay to park your car, and that isn't cheap. I recommend shopping in Telford or the Merry Hill centre where the parking is free, and all the shops are the same if not better!
  • The railway station - ugly ugly ugly.
  • They are still some thick shits who all shop and wear the same clothes, and god knows how, they all have the same brain cell between them. Individuality scares the fuck out of these people so they react in the only way they know... fistiecuffs, daggers, clubs and sometimes guns! The missing link... ape-man!
  • minge and an inch dresscode for most of the tacksome clubs, but seeing as you would never want to go to picassos or atlantis anyway most people are happy to let the evil little trolls in stilleto's have it.
  • The muggers
  • It exists, and to think somebody planned this...if I ever catch up with them!!!
  • BEING CLASSED AS A BRUMMIE
  • Wolverhampton does have a cinema showing mainstream films, in the shape of the Light House Media Centre. Ok it only has two screens but it is much cheaper than the local multiplexes (especially for students), is close to the town centre and there are a couple of decent bars in the foyer.
  • There are BAD areas of Wolves to steer well clear of -- about 1/2 miles out in all directions.. esp. Heathtown, Whitmore Reans.
  • OtherThings:
    • Wolverhampton - what can you say?? I spent three years there at uni, and if I can re-emphasise a point already made... Don't hang round the uni fruit machines!!!!! The clubs are getting steadily better, and the Moon under the Water is a fine drinking joint. I'm going back on Saturday to reacquaint myself with the place, and see how my old house on Drummond Street is... apparently a guy plays loud musuc from his car most nights down there.
      I'll always remember a guy who looked like Tracy Chapman, trying to sell drugs and ponce money off people by saying he'd lost his train fare back to Birmingham?? Ring any bells, or the guy who plays Reggae from his window near ASDA's... class geezer! ASDAs was a fine store. If you get the chance, make sure you get served by Shilinder, the most jovial of checkout girls.
    • Tettenhall is a nice little area, and the pitch and putt golf course, about a mile out of town is fine value for cash! I saw a hole in one at hole 14.
    • Living in Leeds, I can happily say that I don't want my beloved Wolves to get promoted. It's the be-all and end-all if you ask the average Wolves fan, but ultimately we all know that if it actually happened, a little bit of the tardiness of Wolverhampton would be lost. It's not a shiny place you see, but lost in the recent past, always lagging behind despite the best intentions of all involved. I have this nasty feeling that one day we will reach the Premier League and then those long, long cold Saturday evenings spent in front of a roaring fire downing pint after pint of some unheard of guest bitter in the Newhampton, would be to no avail.
      How beautiful the curry tastes when you can't quite focus, but it's Sunday tomorrow and even though we lost 4-1 at home to Stoke, there's an eery pride in supporting The Most Underachieving Football Club in the world. If we do ever get there, then we'll have nothing to moan about! No more freezing your bollocks off at Grimsby and Barnsley, the home fans staring at you and 2,500 others singing 'We love you Wanderers' even though we're 3-0 down and the 90 minutes are up.
      In Wolverhampton, we all pretend we want to be good - as does every town in the country - but deep down, we're exceptionally happy wallowing in our cynicism. Then, you see, that glorious Stevie Bull winner against the Shit in the last minute is just the Best Goal In The History Of Football. "Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end......"
    • Having lived in Wolverhampton for 18 years and 4 months of my life, I have come to the conclusion that, apart from the town centre and the local radio station, it is one of the crappest places on this earth. I moved to Paignton in June and have no intention of going back to visit that dump for at least ten years and there is no way I would EVER live there again. The place is crap, it's a dump and I hate it. I happen to be blessed with a horrific accent which comes from living there for so long. I am trying to get rid of all traces of it from my system. To anyone who is thinking of moving there: Don't bother!! It will be the worst decision of your life!!
    • What about stuff for gays? Sorry straights - but we have a life too! Pity about the Silver Web going, Betty and Norman finally flew off to their casino in the Bahamas - good luck to them too. They ran one of the BEST gay clubs ever! They deserve their happiness - they gave a lot to others. Loads of people will remember Norman and Betty. Best places to cruise: West Park after dark. STAY AWAY from toilets - queer bashers lurk (they that protesteth etc...) STILL a lot of closet gays in the Alex in Chapel Ash. Just do the old eye contact stuff - but NOT when they are with their mates! Wolverhampton Police have a GOOD attitude towards gays - very tolerent I found. LOADS of pubs in Wolverhampton are really 'mixed'. If you want to live in the Gay Community, try Heath Town (Yes!) or Chapel Ash. I now live in London - but would prefer to come back to Wolverhampton.
    • Highfields High School
    • Blakenhall, Heathtown, Whitmoreans, actually half of W-ton.
