Tettenhall is a historic village, site of the Battle of Tettenhall in 910, and famous for its old church, St Michael and All Angels, believed to have been founded around 959. The town is also one of the few places in England to have two village greens. Of these, Tettenhall Upper Green has a paddling pool, extensive open grass area, cricket pitch, and a clubhouse. There is also a shopping area and an iconic clock tower built in 1912. Tettenhall Lower Green is found near the St Michael and All Angels church, and its grassy slope is a popular playground once the winter snow sets in.
Tettenhall has several other tourist attractions, including Moseley Old Hall – a National Trust property in Fordhouses, north of Wolverhampton – a Royal Air Force Museum, an art gallery, and Wightwick Manor and Gardens, a beautiful Victorian manor housing pre-Raphaelite paintings.
