Welcome to Wakefield

Explore the city centre and you’ll find independent boutiques and high street favourites along with a choice of tea rooms and coffee stops. Take a tour of Wakefield Cathedral to hear the history of this spectacular place of worship then enter a world of discovery as you learn the stories of the city and its people at Wakefield Museum.

Delve deeper into our heritage as you journey 140m underground at the National Coal Mining Museum for England. Fancy something a little more elegant? Make sure you visit National Trust Nostell to explore an 18th century mansion set amid 300 acres of gardens, lakeside paths and parkland.

Celebrate the area’s art heritage and see world class sculpture at The Hepworth Wakefield. Prepare to be wowed as you explore art scattered across picturesque landscapes at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It’s not all about the galleries; look out for self-led Artwalk nights where art and ale collide with pop-up workshops and live performances.

There’s so much to discover, take a look below for more inspiration...
