Head to the waterfront and visit Queen’s Mill, once thought to have been the largest stone grinding mill in the world with twenty pairs of grinding stones. Explore the fascinating history on special open days throughout the year organised by the Castleford Heritage Trust.
Love to shop? Browse a range of independent boutiques in the centre of town to find those perfect gifts then head to Juntion 32 Outlet Shopping Village to explore over 80 high street favourites. Just across the road you’ll find your next adrenaline rush on the real snow slope at Xscape Yorkshire.
Not forgetting the little ones, they'll love a family day out on real JCB diggers at Diggerland Yorkshire!
