Wakefield Civic Society can provide guided walks of the city centre to organised groups. Walks will reveal some of the cityís diverse architecture, art works and development plans while telling the story of Wakefield through its buildings and its more famous inhabitants.

The duration and route of each walk can be tailored to meet the needs of your group but we suggest a minimum of around two hours as a starting point and a limit on group numbers of approximately 20 people.

The Society is registered charity (number 236034) and walks will be provided by volunteer members of the Societyís committee in return for a donation to the Societyís funds. For more information, please email or telephone 07967 516841

The Society also provides guided walks from time to time throughout the year ñ please see our Events Programme website page at
