Three fun and FREE activities in Wakefield
April 10, 2018
Besides being home to our first office, there are a few more reasons we believe Wakefield is THE place to be.
The Yorkshire Sculpture Park
The only one of its kind, Yorkshire Sculpture Park is an award-winning international centre for modern and contemporary art, experienced and enjoyed by thousands of visitors yearly. Combining the very best of art and nature, you can take a serene stroll around the park to see over 60 works of arts on display across the 500 acre estate, completely for free.
The Hepworth Wakefield has over 1,600 sq m of light-filled gallery spaces, making it one of the largest exhibition spaces outside of the capital and including, for those in the know, the Wakefield Collection, the Gott Collection, and the Hepworth Collection of over 40 rarely-seen plasters.
The Hepworth welcomes kids, and even offer a family trail to help you keep 5 to 12s moving and interested throughout the galleries.
National Coal Mining Museum
Always fancied going on an adventure 140m underground? Well now you can! The National Coal Mining Museum gives the whole family chance to see a century old tradition usually hidden to the public – for free! Pop on a hard hat and take a trip through their exhibits which explore how miners lived way back in the Victorian era right on up to modern day.
