Wakefield

The city of Wakefield has a great mix of historic, artistic and creative attractions, and is situated in the heart of the beautiful West Yorkshire countryside. Wakefield is an inspiring place to visit, not only for its historic buildings such as the cathedral, priory and castle, but also as a centre for the arts, and in particular, sculpture. The newly opened Hepworth Wakefield, is a centre for art and culture, and is one of the largest galleries outside London. It is home to a huge range of exhibitions and also houses a dedicated learning centre offering a range of hands-on workshops for children, making this a great place for families to visit. Just outside the city is the amazing Yorkshire Sculpture Park, a unique, outdoor centre for modern and contemporary sculpture, set out in scenic gardens and parkland.
