Wakefield has a rich history which dates back to the Domesday Book in 1066. During medieval times it was used as an inland port for the woollen trade on the river Calder. In 1704 the first Registry of Deeds in the country opened in Wakefield and in 1765 Wakefield’s cattle market was formed.
Today, Wakefield is packed full of landmarks and places to visit. From seeing the ruins of 15th century Sandal Castle and taking a stroll around the modern Hepworth Gallery to spending a day out shopping or taking the kids for a walk around the Pennines, there’s so much to do for the whole family.
eurochange Wakefield is located on Teall Way at Trinity Walk opposite Card Factory and next to Muffin Break and offers a variety of great services including selling and buying back over 70 currencies, Multi-Currency Cash Passport, Travellers Cheques, order online and collect in just 60 seconds, international payments and more.
