Mini guide to Walsall


Walsall is an ancient borough and market town located just 8 miles outside of Birmingham, near the border with Staffordshire. The town is famous for its leather work, ironmongery and saddlery - Walsall is still home to over 90 leather companies, exporting its goods around the world. The town is surrounded by coal, iron and limestone mines, which provided economic growth during the Industrial Revolution.

Walsall boasts a range of museums to suit every visitor's interest. Walsall Inside Out showcases the history of the people of Walsall, past and present. The New Art Gallery opened in 2000, displaying modern art and is hailed as one of the most exciting new art galleries to be built in the UK. Don't miss the Walsall Leather Museum, which celebrates the illustrious history of the town as a world leader in leather crafting.

The famous Walsall Illuminations take place at the Walsall Arboretum every year, at the end of September, and should not be missed. Known as Britain's biggest indoor illuminations, it includes laser shows, lakeside lights, live entertainment and much more. Either way, the Walsall Arboretum is worth a visit. It covers roughly 80 acres and has over 200 varieties of trees and shrubs - visitors can walk beside the landscaped gardens, along tree-lined paths and the lake.

Walsall is best accessed from Birmingham. Birmingham International Airport is located just outside the city, with plenty of regional international connections. Birmingham New Street train station connects the city to London Euston station in two hours, with two departures an hour. Due to its central location Birmingham is well connected to the rest of England. Many of the major motorways converge in Birmingham including the M40, M42, M5 and M6 which skirts Walsall, making access by car easy, though congestion occurs often.
