We recommend these three hotels:
Closest? Holiday Inn Express Wakefield - Smart, modern, basic rooms, but right in the heart of the city centre
Cheapest? Campanile Wakefield - close to town and the banks of the River Calder – perfect for country walks in between rhubarb appointments
Feeling Fancy? Heath Cottage - Cute cottage-style on the outskirts of town with smart rooms and modern amenities
Wakefield is just south of Leeds, which is served by all major train lines.
Iris is one of Wakefield’s most celebrated restaurants, finish a delicious meal here with their top notch rhubarb fool.
