Hi all, could anyone advise on what they think are the nice parts of Wakefield? I'm moving to Yorkshire with a young family so interested in schools, playgroups, mum's groups, transport links, coffee shops etc!!! Considering Wakefield as an alternative to living in Leeds. Thanks so much in advance for any thoughts! :-)

Hi TravelSuper,

Welcome to Yorkshire! Depends on you I'm many ways what it budget is, how close you'd like to be to town etc. I've found new millerdam & the surrounding areas to be lovely as is flockton and horbury. They're all a little while out of the city but with good bus links to the centre it doesn't feel like a million miles away. Horbury in particular has lots of young families so seems to have good playground etc.

Good luck with your search smile

I moved to Wakefield in July last year with a young family.
We live in Ossett, which is lovely. The areas mentioned above are very good too.
