A cathedral city nestled in the picturesque landscape of West Yorkshire on the River Calder, Wakefield has an interesting and diverse heritage. Of course there is its mining history, without which Wakefield as we know it today wouldn’t exist. However, there’s far more to be found here. Indeed, the culture of Wakefield is varied including award winning art galleries through to indulging your sweet tooth at the Pontefract Liquorice Festival. There are also three museums worth visiting: Castleford, Pontefract and Wakefield, as well as other local sites to see. Did you know Henry Moore was born here?
