Nestled in the Pennines and its foothills, West Yorkshire is an English inland metropolitan county adjoining the Nidderdale AONB to the north and the Peak District National Park to the south. The county is home to the cities of Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield, and the boroughs of Calderdale and Kirklees. Derbyshire borders West Yorkshire to the south, with Great Manchester to the south-west. Find Lancashire to the west and north-west, North Yorkshire to the north and east, and South Yorkshire to the south and south-east.

Living in West Yorkshire

Once an industrial heartland, West Yorkshire wears its past with pride in its buildings and architecture. Interspersed with large areas of green belt land, you’re never far from dramatic viewpoints or country rambles. From the cultural centre of Leeds and Wakefield’s picturesque landscapes to Bradford’s famous curry houses and delightful market towns, it’s no wonder the area attracts renowned artists and filmmakers.

Despite its rural surroundings, West Yorkshire is very well connected by the M62, M1 and the A1(M), and the internal urban motorways in Leeds and Bradford.
