New Homes in Wakefield

In years gone by Wakefield in West Yorkshire was an important market town known for its wool, corn, coal mining and textiles. In recent times it has benefited from significant investment and regeneration, which has seen large sections of Wakefield transformed into a modern, vibrant city.

Wakefield Transport Links

Ideally situated where national motorways the M1 and the M62 intersect, Wakefield is only a short car journey from the central business districts of Leeds (20 minutes), Manchester (60 minutes) and Sheffield (40 minutes). A train journey to London King’s Cross from Wakefield Westgate is a commute of just two hours. It is conveniently close to several International airports including Leeds Bradford (30 minutes), Manchester (60 minutes) and Robin Hood (60 minutes).

Shopping in Wakefield

In the last few years, Trinity Walk Shopping Centre has opened in the heart of Wakefield, offering shoppers access to the UK’s most popular high street stores. People looking for new houses for sale in Wakefield will find all kinds of retailers to choose from, including Wakefield Market which offers a good selection of locally produced fresh produce.

Stay Cultured

The Hepworth Wakefield is near to the city centre and was reported by The Independent Newspaper as “one of the finest contemporary art museums in Europe.” Housing a spectacular collection of modern art, The Hepworth regularly exhibits work by famous artists and many rarely seen works. Other attractions include the Wakefield Museum and the city’s most famous landmark, Wakefield Cathedral. Lovers of theatre regularly find themselves enjoying the high-value productions that regularly play at the Theatre Royal Wakefield. The National Coal Mining Museum for England, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Nostell Priory are popular attractions near the city, as are the historic ruins of Sandal Castle.

Keeping Active

Competitive sport is an important part of the Wakefield community. Local Rugby League team the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats play in the sport’s top division and are supported by a very passionate fan base. The nearby Pontefract Racecourse holds regular meetings, whilst the Xscape Yorkshire provides winter sport enthusiasts with Yorkshire’s only indoor ski slope.

A Brand New Outlook
