Wakefield, a relatively small city and it has undergone a great deal of change in the last thirty years. The city centre emanates outwards from the magnificent Gothic cathedral which began life back in the 14th Century. The Ridings Centre was one of the first indoor shopping malls in the country and the blueprint for many more. The outdoor Trinity shopping mall opened a few years ago and is a magnet for shoppers. The Hepworth Gallery is a nationally famous art gallery housing works by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, both of whom have roots in the area. Today, the city centre boasts many restaurants offering cuisine from all over the world, including Japan and Ethiopia.

Trip in and Around Wakefield  

There are lots of things to see and do in and around Wakefield. Why not charter one of our minibuses to take you and your friends to see a rugby league game at Belle Vue, home of Wakefield Wildcats. The Yorkshire Sculpture Park at nearby West Breton makes for a great day out. Apart from huge sculptures set against magnificent landscaped gardens, there is a lake, café and visitors centre. Junction 32 lies just off the M62 at Castleford. There you will find a lot of popular high street names, designer outlets and the Xscape activity centre.

Day Trips from Wakefield  

The city is only 11 miles from Leeds with its modern eclectic shopping centre with world-class retailers, restaurants, bars, the Grand Theatre, West Yorkshire Playhouse and Leeds Arena. Or, why not go south to Sheffield and the Meadowhall Centre. Drive into the Pennines near Huddersfield, perhaps drop in on Holmfirth, home of TVs Last of the Summer Wine or head north to the lively market town of Skipton, gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. Seaside resorts aren’t too far away either, a trip to Bridlington is under two hours away and Scarborough and Whitby, with its links to the Dracula story, are not much further. York is always worth a visit, a 25-mile drive away, it is one of the country’s major tourist destinations with its Roman walls, magnificent Gothic Minister many museums and other historical buildings.

Our Minibuses  

We have built a fleet of minibuses and coaches that we are truly proud of. On our forecourt are minibuses by all the major manufacturers including, Iveco, Ford, Mercedes. All of our vehicles are subject to preventative maintenance cheeks and serviced regularly in line with the manufacturer’s instructions. We replenish our fleet regularly which means no vehicle is more than 6 years old. Minibuses can take from 8 to 18 people depending on the model. Larger groups can take advantage of one of our fabulous coaches. Our smallest coach holds 21, our largest 72 and there is a range of sizes in between.

Travelling by Minibus  

Railway travel is getting more expensive, not to mention unreliable, as each week passes. Also, you have to get to and from the station, whereas, with a minibus, you can go door-to-door. We provide a driver, so you don’t need to worry about that, all your party can relax and enjoy their day out. Our driver will collect you on time from the agreed meeting point and get you to your destination for the time you need to be there. We hire minibuses for all types of trips including:

• Weddings;
