Discover Castleford

Welcome to historic Castleford. Once the home of Roman legions, today a hub of Rugby League, this market town has loads to offer.

Uncover the town’s story from the Celtic Iron Age, through the growth of coal mining to the present day at Castleford Museum.

Enjoy a day browsing the colourful stalls of the local market, and then get yourself a cup of something hot from one of the town’s independent coffee shops, tearooms and cafes.

Take a walk through nature at RSPB Fairburn Ings, or carve up the earth at Diggerland.

Stroll along the waterfront by Queen’s Mill, and get your next adrenaline rush at Xscape.

There’s more than meets the eye at Castleford. So what are you waiting for?
