Elegant spa towns and rugged landscapes abound here
Whether it’s a weekend break to walk across the breathtaking moors, days out with the children or a taste sensation at an award-winning restaurant, West Yorkshire has got it all. In this county, the great outdoors is king when it comes to trips out. Green spaces, natural and man-made, cover West Yorkshire, each with its own special treats from Hardcastle Crags and Sparth Reservoir wild swimming oasis to outdoor lidos and Victorian-walled gardens in the grounds of historic houses, and of course the amazing moorlands. From buzzing main centres to relaxed and friendly evenings in the heart of the countryside, West Yorkshire won’t let you down. Huddersfield, Bradford, Halifax and Wakefield provide the sort of busy urban nightlife you’d expect, with gems for the discerning customer who doesn’t want to fight through crowds of youths to a sloshing bar.
In terms of eating out, top restaurants offering English and French fine dining, off-set by a host of superb gastropubs, quirky corners and culturally-diverse feasting spots give West Yorkshire the tools to ignite any set of tastebuds. With a host of shopping malls and beautiful town centres hosting big name retailers and quirky independents, West Yorkshire has all you need for a bit of retail therapy. Wherever you base yourself in the county, there is always somewhere to buy the things you need, but also many opportunities to treat yourself, and many very special places to go hunting for something new and unusual. .
