Wakefield is a city in West Yorkshire located on the edge of the Pennines, 9 miles south-east of Leeds. It is well-connected by rail with a choice of two train stations: Wakefield Kirkgate and Wakefield Westgate – Leeds being a 20 minute journey, Doncaster 17 minutes and London just over 2 hours. The M1 and M62 are easily accessible and Leeds Bradford International Airport is just 19 miles away.

The city is home to Wakefield Cathedral, which has the tallest spire in Yorkshire and the old Wakefield Bridge - both beautiful examples of its architecture. Sandal and Pontefract castles are additional historical attractions. The city boasts a lot of culture with Hepworth Sculpture Park, the National Coal Mining Museum, Wakefield Art Gallery and the Wakefield Theatre Royal and Opera House all in the bounds of the city. Pugneys country park is close by and offers non-powered water sports and a nature reserve with Walton Hall worth a visit along with Anglers country park and Nostell Priory.

There are also a number of ongoing regeneration projects in Wakefield including the Trinity Walk retail development which is home to a range of shops and new department stores and the Wakefield Waterfront development by the river which includes the refurbishment of the Grade II listed Navigation Warehouse and office, retail, restaurant and cafe units. Wakefield also has a great array of pubs selling real local ale and a host of markets.

St John's Church and Square and St John's North and South Parade are all part of a residential development dating from the Georgian period and are packed with period properties as are the areas of Agbrigg and Sandal. The suburban areas of Alverthorpe, Wrenthorpe, and Outwood are all popular and have a mix of affordable terraced houses, whilst Newmillerdam and the village of Crofton are reserved for those with money to spend. The prices of property ranges in Wakefield from terraces starting at £70 000 and detacheds reaching up to £750 000.
