Operated by the West Midlands Metro, Wolverhampton’s tram service is top notch. With stops at both Wolverhampton Train Station, and St George’s, just a 12-minute walk or a 10-minute ride away on the number 3 bus, the metro opens you up to anywhere between Wolverhampton and Birmingham, including Bilston, West Bromwich, and of course, Birmingham itself! So, with just a 40-minute journey from Wolverhampton St George’s to Bull Street or Grand Central in Birmingham, you can get there and back in a day, no problem!
Just a 15-minute walk, or a 15-minute ride away on the number 4 bus, is Wolverhampton Train Station. On the West Midlands Railway, the train station provides quick and easy access to Telford, Shrewsbury, Birmingham, Manchester, Worcester, Stratford-upon-Avon, Cambridge, Stansted Airport, and London Euston, so it’s just a quick skip and a hope to wherever you want to go!
As you all know, TheStudios is situated on Birch Street, which is just off of the Wolverhampton Ring Road, or the A4150, which essentially gives all our residents access to anywhere around the city in absolutely no time! Furthermore, if you go round the Ring Road to the A4123, or Birmingham New Road, you’ll get to Dudley, if you take the A449, A5, and then the M6, you’ll eventually get to Manchester, and if you go round to the A454, you’ll get to Birmingham, and then you can take the M6 to London!
