Welcome to Wakefield

Sitting just above the River Calder, Wakefield is a small yet fast-growing city that is bursting with culture and character.

This unique city’s blend of metropolitan living and rural scenery makes it an ideal place for families of all ages and sizes to settle.

While the city centre is home to the trendy Trinity Walk Shopping centre and the world-renowned Hepworth Wakefield art gallery, there is just as much fun to be had further afield. Weekends can be spent taking the kids to the National Coal Mining Museum or enjoying a stroll around Pugneys Country Park with the dog, and Wakefield’s ideal location offers easy access to nearby hotpots such as Leeds, Barnsley and Huddersfield.
