Storageking Walsall

Originally a manufacturing town, Walsall was at the epicentre of expert craftsmanship in England. Situated in the county of West Midlands, creativity coursed through its streets for centuries, developing some of the best hand-made saddles and bridles in the UK. Today, it’s no different. Plunge into a restorative pool, learn the art of leather crafting, and explore the wonders of Walsall in this blog. 


Walsall Leather Museum

The Walsall Leather Museum is one of the town’s most famed and oldest attractions, depicting its rich roots in the leather crafting trade. The newly restored Victorian factory is free of charge and offers visitors a fascinating look into the intricate craft which supported thousands of households in the area. Vintage saddles, bags, shoes and other antiques are all on display at the gallery, and if your fingers start to itch, try your hand at the time-honoured craft at the workshop. 

The New Art Gallery Walsall 

Step away from the past and into the future at The New Art Gallery Walsall. The innovative gallery first opened its doors in 2 000 as an attempt to inspire and promote a new generation of artists. Each floor is dedicated to a different purpose, with floors 1 and 2 housing extensive art collections, and 3 and 4 focussing on contemporary visual arts. The creative centre also features a rooftop terrace, art library and coffee shop!


Walsall Arboretum

Built in 1874, the Walsall Arboretum is not only buzzing with history but nature and adventure, too! The Victorian public park is located in the heart of the town and was once part of the Cannock Forest that formed the boundary of a great royal hunting ground. Visitors and locals flock here to soak up the summer sun and the diverse species of shrubs and trees, of which over 10 000 call these woods homes. 

Walsall Gala Baths 

After frolicking in the fields, take a relaxing dip in the Walsall Gala Baths. Whether you’re an avid swimmer or health nut, the centre has a range of pools guaranteed to tickle your fancy. Swimmers can beat their best time in the competition style pool, while the brine baths are perfect for those looking to unwind and wash away the week’s aches and pains.

After a day of adventure, there’s nothing better than a delicious meal. The Littleton is a top fine-dining restaurant in Walsall serving some of the best local cuisine the town has to offer. Savour a scrumptious goats cheese tart or set your tastebuds ablaze with their strawberry and elderflower cheesecake!
