​The city of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, is one of many of Yorkshire’s cities that boasts some of the most stunning and classical architectural history England has to offer. Buildings such as The Hepworth Gallery, Wakefield Cathedral and Sandal Castle are all stand alone attractions, not to mention the unmissable scenery in the area, notably Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Nostell Priory and Parkland. Wakefield truly is a place with endless activities and beautiful locations.

Despite sounding like an undiscovered paradise, Wakefield actually lies in the heart of England, not far from Leeds. For this reason, Wakefield has the M1 running alongside the western side of the city, and to the east, various A-roads such as the A61 and A650. As an additional means of transport, Wakefield Kirkgate and Westgate train stations offer the option of train transport around the area and further afield. Leeds Airport is also only around 20 miles away from Wakefield, allowing an accessible option for flights from within the area.
