The Industrial Revolution and the coming of the railway in 1847 turned the village of Walsall into a town, although travellers arriving at Walsall station today would be hard-pressed to find much of this heritage at first glance.

Since 1980, Walsall train station has been contained within the Saddler's Shopping Centre, right in the heart of town and just a short walk from the pedestrianised centre to the north and east. Close by is The New Art Gallery Walsall, which opened in 2000 - alongside its permanent collection, it hosts regular exhibitions of modern and contemporary art. Beyond the town centre and about 15 minutes' walk from the station is Walsall Arboretum, a park that was created in 1874 around two flooded limestone quarries. The park has a boating lake, bowling green, playgrounds and a water park for when the weather is fine. Recent refurbishments include a new cafe and miniature train.
