Brass bands, cricket and Yorkshire pudding – West Yorkshire has it all!
West Yorkshire includes the most built-up and industrialised areas of Yorkshire – but also some of the best loved and most beautiful scenery in the whole of England. Outside the bustling cities of Leeds, Wakefield and Bradford, historic market towns and villages preserve the very best of Yorkshire with its rich heritage.
Things to do in West Yorkshire
There’s so much to enjoy in and around the county, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.
West Yorkshire is well known for its number of wonderful parks, gardens, and manor grounds to explore. Enjoy a relaxing walk around Roundhay Park in Leeds or visit the magical bird garden of Harwood House – it’s perfect for a day out with the grandchildren.
Pontefract is well known for its horse racing, dating back to the eighteenth century with the first grandstand on the current course being built in 1801. The course hosts plenty of race meetings throughout the year including family afternoons and midweek events.
Why walking in West Yorkshire is the best? Its rocky landscape – with the South Pennines in the West and the Yorkshire Coalfield in the East – makes for some dramatic scenery with steep valleys and rolling hillsides and the rivers Aire and Calder.
West Yorkshire’s built-up areas are home to hundreds of shopping facilities to satisfy your everyday needs.. You will find a wide variety of shops from local market stalls to chains of supermarkets that we all know and love and impressive shopping centres like Trinity Leeds. As well as this, there are many highly rated restaurants and cafes to stop for coffee and cake or lunch as you please.
