Shopping

It's time for some retail therapy, and there's nowhere better than the Wakefield district.

For big name brands and high street favourites, visit our shopping centres and outlets: The Ridings, Trinity Walk, Junction 32 and Carlton Lanes.

In Wakefield, as well as two shopping centres, and colourful market stalls centred around the mighty Cathedral, you'll find big brands and independent retailers offering something a little bit different. 

In Pontefract, it's a different story. This historic market town is home to a range of quirky boutiques, so set aside some time to browse - you'll need it! You'll also find the historic treasures of the Pontefract Castle gift shop here (reopening August), and the field-to-fork goodness of Farmer Copleys.

In Castleford, enjoy a whole host of independent retailers and vibrant market stalls. 

Whatever you're looking for, and wherever you shop, the district's got something for you. Why not make a day of it? Check out our Wakefield, Castleford and Pontefract Destination pages to find out more about what else you can do during your shopping trip.

Please remember: Although most shops are now open again, they may have reduced hours or offer a different shopping experience than you'll remember.
Please check before you travel, and please adhere to the latest social distancing guidelines.
