Why Wakefield?

When looking to invest in office space the question that is often asked is Why Wakefield?

Wakefield has come along way in recent times. The building of The Hepworth, the largest purpose-built exhibition space outside of London, and the regeneration of many historic buildings has breathed new life into the city. For many years it was labelled the `poor relation` to Leeds but with one of the fastest growing economies (showing 91% increase in GVA between 1997 - 2012) it`s making its own path to greatness.

Many large corporates choose to locate their head offices in Wakefield, such as;
  • Soft drink giant Cocoa Cola
  • International courier DHL
  • Worldwide Confectioner Haribo
  • Bread producer Warburtons
Much inward investment has been focused on not just Wakefield but also the surrounding district with developments already underway in Normanton, Castleford and Pontefract.

Located right in the heart of the UK, with 5 major motorways accessible just minutes from the town centre, as well as being on the East Coast Mainline to London Kings Cross it`s the ideal location for many businesses.

Wakefield also has a vibrant business community, supported by Wakefield First and Wakefield Bondholders who host regular networking events and provide plenty of business support.

Whether your business is a start-up, freelancer, an established business looking to expand or relocate, there are multiple options for putting your business in the spotlight.

Wakefield First produced this fantastic video that highlights just some of the reasons to make Wakefield the home for your next business move - Why Wakefield.
