Our last blog post was so popular we thought we’d treat you to even more inspiring ideas of unusual things to do on your next visit to our district. Check them out & let us know your favourite…
Experience new heights
Jump to new heights as you experience the thrill of indoor trampolining at Gravity Trampoline Park at Xscape Yorkshire. Wall-to-wall trampolines let you safely practice new jumps, slam-dunk in the basketball hoops, join a dodgeball session or just enjoy bouncing to your hearts content.
Go fly a kite
Travel a short distance out of the city and you’ll soon be surrounded by wide open countryside, perfect for flying a kite. Head to Heath Village in September when the sky is filled with spectacular kites of every shape, size and colour at the annual Kite Festival.
Glow in the dark
Experience an art workshop like never before as you unravel the mystery of neon light at Neon Workshops. See mesmerising demonstrations with glass and flame and glowing examples of neon art explained. Watch the sculptures come alive as they are illuminated with gas and electricity, then it’s your turn to get creative. Taster workshops and intensive courses are available throughout the year.
See a show
Take your seats in the beautiful Grade II* listed Theatre Royal Wakefield and as the curtain goes up watch the 19th century Victorian building come alive with a variety of colourful and stirring performances from local and national theatre companies.
There’s lots going on outside of the school holidays, with plenty of fun experiences on offer for the under 5’s throughout the year. Bring the little ones along for exciting adventures indoors and out, become a mini miner at National Coal Mining Museum, get creative at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, get messy at Wakefield Museum and follow the mysterious footprints along the Room on the Broom Trail at Anglers Country Park to find the well-known characters from the story.
