Pontefract is said to be one of the advanced towns situated in England. Over the years, Pontefract has developed as one of the most appointed centers in the country.
Built in 1888, the famous Wakefield Church recently became the Church of All Saints when the Wakefield Diocese carved out of the Ripon Diocese. There is also a famous Wakefield Museum where one can explore sounds and sights of rainforest which were explored by Charles Waterton who was the environmentalist of Pontefract.
Anglers Country Park, Brodsworth Garden, Hemsworth Water Park, Newmillerdam country Park, Sandal Castle and Pugneys Country Park are some of the interesting places in Pontefract.

Overall Guide : There are lot's of attractions and Pontefract town is a lovely place to see, you could spend a whole day looking around the town, and theres lovely pubs and restaraunts. Pontefract castle is a wonderful day out on certain days... more because there is always fun days (my favourite is when they put teddy bears around the castle and everybody is aloud to choose their favourite to take home for free) it's a great place for kids because theres lot's of places to explore. I've lived here all my life and still haven't seen everything.
Not to be missed Pontefract castle , Pontefract town , Pontefract museum
