🖼️ The Hepworth Wakefield
This is an award winning art gallery that is free to enter. There’s an indoor picnic area and outdoor playground. They have lots of activities on during the holidays which are also free.
🗿Yorkshire Sculpture Park
The park is free but you do have to pay for parking. The car park charges contribute to the running costs of YSP which is an independent museum and registered charity. It is such an amazing place. They change their exhibitions regularly and there’s lots for families.
💦 City Park, Bradford
The mirror pool is the largest urban water feature in the UK. It is a bubbling, squirting, popping and splashing fountain display that kids can go wild in.
⛏ National Coal Mining Museum for England (Wakefield)
One of the top 5 things to do in West Yorkshire according to Trip Advisor. Children of all ages are welcome across all areas of the site. I believe it’s £5 to park and £5 if you want to do the tour but this is optional.
They have stables, adventure playground, indoor play for under 5’s, original mining equipment and buildings and more
☕️ The Arium (Leeds)
This is a garden centre with an amazing free outdoor play space. There’s ride on toys, giant sandpit and coffee pod. *Pictured*
⚔️ Royal Armouries (Leeds)
Right in the city centre and plenty to do and see.
🌳 Angler’s Country Park (Wakefield)
