Discover a county that's packed with history

From ancient forts and grand country mansions to curious museums and world class art galleries, there's plenty of West Yorkshire's heritage to uncover around the area.

You can see the ruins of a 12th century monastery at the Kirkstall Abbey near Leeds, visit Victoria Tower, the 19th century monument to Queen Victoria on Castle Hill, near Huddersfield, or take a tour of the massive Harewood House, an 18th-century mansion set in a thousand acres of Capability Brown landscape.

You'll find photography, television and animation at the National Media Museum in Bradford, thousands of modern works of art at the Hepworth Wakefield gallery, and underground tours with above-ground exhibitions at the National Coal Mining Museum in Overton.

Retire to an area full of nature and wildlife

Whether you're looking for picturesque parks or fascinating nature reserves, there's lots of natural beauty to discover in West Yorkshire.

You can wander through one of the biggest city parks in Europe at the 700-acre Roundhay Park in Leeds, explore the lake and woodland of Newmillerdam Country Park in Wakefield, or do your best to see every corner of the 500-square-mile Peak District National Park.

You'll find meerkats, crocodiles and exotic birds at Tropical World in Leeds, 200 different species of birds and plants at the Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve near Brighouse, and a collection of more than 60 birds of prey at SMJ Falconry in Oxenhope.

Testimonial image

Because we purchased off-plan, we were lucky to choose the pick of the best plots, with stunning views over the communal gardens. I was most impressed with McCarthy and Stone’s flexibility and willingness to help. McCarthy and Stone were incredibly supportive, and made the whole process seem easy.
