About Wakefield, West Yorkshire

Wakefield is a cathedral city in West Yorkshire on the eastern edge of the Pennines.

Wakefield is very well connected with the intersection of the M1 and M62 motorways nearby, connecting it with London to Leeds and Liverpool to Hull respectively. The A61, A638 and A642 roads cross here and the A636 and A650 roads start in the city.

Leeds Bradford Airport is around 19 miles north of the city.

The city has two railway stations, one is Wakefield Kirkgate station which lies on the Hallam, Pontefract and Huddersfield lines. It also runs some services to London King’s Cross. Wakefield Westgate station runs services to Leeds, Doncaster as well as stations towards London King’s Cross. Other train services go to Newcastle, Edinburgh, Birmingham and the South West. There are limited trains to Sheffield, Derby and Leicester. Trains to London take less than two hours.

Wakefield has a lot to offer for all ages such as The Hepworth Wakefield, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, National Coal Mining Museum for England, National Trust Nostell, Pontefract Castle. Other adventurous activities include windsurfing across the lake at Pugneys Country Park, Gravity Trampoline Park or the snow slopes at Snozone.

For outdoor enthusiasts there are 69 managed parks and wildlife areas in the district, perfect for cycling, walking and wildlife spotting. In 2017 Wakefield was ranked as the tenth-fastest growing city economy in the UK. Part of the success is credited to the city’s location, with excellent transport links, ongoing regeneration and popular tourist attractions. A push to further develop the education sector is expected to bring further boost to the city.
