We know it’s been a very tough time for businesses recently. Whether you’re in hospitality, retail, leisure or the food and drink sector, the challenges you’ve faced have been immense.

At Experience Wakefield, we want to help however we can. Be that with an updated listing (making sure your customers know what to expect from the “new normal”), your venue and events promoted through our social channels, or just keeping you in touch with the latest helpful advice and opportunities in the tourism trade.

That’s where this page comes in. We’ve collected together information we think you’ll find useful in navigating the time ahead.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for here, or for anything else you need, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Want to be listed?

Do you run a distinctive tourism business, hotel or visitor attraction within the Wakefield district? You may be able to feature your venue on this website.

To do this you will need to supply us with information about your venue and provide us with high quality photographs. Please complete the form here.

Basic listings are FREE. All we ask in return is that where possible, you signpost your customers to our website for What’s On information.

Experience Wakefield is not a general directory and so unfortunately, not every venue is suitable to feature on the website, and inclusion on the website is at our discretion.
