Experience Wakefield

We’re proud to be home to award winning art galleries and the birthplace of renowned sculptors Dame Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.

Step back in time and explore our heritage - a visit down’t coal pit is a must! Take in the splendour of an 18th century National Trust mansion and discover the stories of our people at Castleford, Pontefract and Wakefield museums.

Fancy a festival? We’ve got lots to choose from. Celebrate our favourite pink vegetable at the Festival of Food, Drink & Rhubarb, delight your sweet tooth at the Pontefract Liquorice Festival and grab your bucket and spade for Seaside in the City.

Don't just try something new, try something unique! Create your own neon sculptures, journey into the dungeons of a medieval castle, have a sleepover at a nature reserve and lots more.

Those are just a few ideas of how to experience Wakefield and you’ll find all the information you need to know right here. Now it’s over to you, time to start planning...
