The Magnificent Conservatory in West Park, Wolverhampton.

Victorian Splendour.

As I promised myself, I have come back to get a closer photograph of this rather splendid building. Sadly, due to the current situation, it is not possible to explore the inside with all its wonderful tropical and dessert plants. Apparently it was once famous for its chrysanthemums. Although it was at risk around 10 or so years ago, common sense has prevailed and the conservatory in West Park, Wolverhampton has been lovingly restored and is now Grade II listed.

This park is a wonderful step back in time. It is so easy to imagine what it would have been like in Victorian times, yet it is fit for purpose for today’s modern times too. For a bit more of the history, take a look at the Wolverhampton history page on the subject.
