Travelling around Wakefield
Any estate agent will tell you that the three things that matter most are ‘location, location and location’. The history of Wakefield, a city on the River Calder in West Yorkshire, England, certainly bears that out.
Wakefield is located very close to the centre of England, with strong rail links across the country and road links via the M1, M62 and A1 to regional hubs, such as Leeds, Sheffield and York.
Wakefield itself is an appealing mixture of historical landmarks and modern cultural and commercial statements, blending respect for the past with an optimistic vision of the future. The river and canal have provided a natural focal point for much recent regeneration, and visitors today will usually find themselves relaxing near to the water with something delicious to eat or drink.
