Attractions in the Town Centre include the New Art Gallery Walsall as well as both the Leather Museum and Walsall Museum and the Local History Centre. The Central Library and Walsall Gala Baths can be found near the Civic Centre.

Investment confidence in the Town Centre has seen over £400 million in physical development over recent years and continues to grow. This includes a new £7 million development, led by Walsall Council,  providing  a new two storey store for Primark, with an adjoining new food store for Midcounties Co-operative. This marks the start of wider redevelopment of the Old Square Shopping Centre.
