Discover Wakefield

Have you discovered Wakefield yet? Take in award-winning contemporary art and sculpture at The Hepworth Wakefield, then enjoy a change of pace and explore the peaceful setting of historic Wakefield Cathedral (with the tallest spire in Yorkshire).

Head out of the city and take a stroll around Yorkshire Sculpture Park, or cycle through the world’s first nature reserve at Haw Park Wood and nearby Anglers Country Park. Uncover the district’s mining heritage at the National Coal Mining Museum, or travel back further in time at Sandal castle.

Enjoy world-class cuisine in one of our many restaurants, or have a scrumptious lunch and a pint in a cosy country pub.

Wakefield boasts excellent transport links, and at the crossroads of the M62 and M1, the location is perfect for a weekend getaway.
