The bright, modern Trinity Walk offers a perfect retail experience. Alternatively, the Ridings Shopping centre houses many well-known brands. If you’re looking for something different, the new Wakefield Waterfront is home to independent shops and cafés.

Wakefield Culture

Wakefield is perhaps best known as the home of Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, whose famous sculptures can be found across the world. The Hepworth Wakefield art gallery has many examples of her work, as well as other exciting shows. For those who wish to travel further, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is just a short distance from the city centre and is also a great place to explore, particularly with children. Visitors with a sweet tooth might be interested to learn that Wakefield is part of the Rhubarb Triangle, so after a long day exploring, it’s worth seeking out some of the delicious and refreshing fruit.
