Head to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to peruse outdoor works of all shapes and sizes, all set within the stunning 500-acre gardens of an 18th-century country estate. Tour the changing roster of sculptures, pause by the lake and admire the historic buildings at this popular attraction. Next, explore the landmark Hepworth Wakefield, a thoroughly modern and brilliant exhibition space, or discover one of the city's many smaller galleries and museums.
While there's much to enjoy in Wakefield itself, nature lovers will be keen to pack the boot of their hire car and set off on a day trip to some of the most enchanting green spaces in the area, including the beautiful Bullcarr Mires, home to 120 species of birds, and the Alverthorpe Meadows & Wrenthorpe Park. Found in the city's suburbs, these beautiful, wildflower-strewn meadows clearly show ridges and patterns from medieval times.
