Based in the heart of Wakefield city centre, The Ridings Shopping Centre offers popular high street names, independent stores and a convenient, welcoming place to meet for a bite to eat or a coffee.

With over 80 stores over three floors and open 7 days a week, The Ridings combines fashion, beauty, food and homeware – there’s something for everyone!

Shop your favourite high street brands such as M&S, Boots, Primark and Morrisons, then find something a little different in independently-owned stores like Artworld Gallery and The Wakefield Antiques & Collectables Centre.

Enjoy one of the many fun, free events which are held regularly at the Centre, and with everything from craft fairs and style events to tea dances and kids’ character events, they’re suitable for all the family.

After getting your shopping fix, why not sit back and enjoy a film at Reel Cinema? Located on the upper mall, opposite Boots and M&S, this state of the art, 5 screen cinema shows all the latest blockbusters, and visitors are entitled to free parking when purchasing a ticket.

There’s parking for 1000+ cars so getting to the centre has never been easier and since it’s all undercover, you can shop with ease, whatever the weather!
