Wakefield lies near the district of West Yorkshire, England. Its population in 2001 was close to 80,000. The city's name is derived out of the Old English word "wacu," meaning a watch or a wake. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Wakefield housed abundant textile mills near the River Calder as well as mining locations, and brickyards. Employment was mainly based around the coal mining industry; in fact the National Coal Board was Wakefield's major employer. Like most industries, there are times when they enter into decline. In the late twentieth century, textile and glass industries began to decline as well as coal pit closures, causing many to strike as a result. Currently Wakefield attains the national average for unemployment.

The recent FreeCityBus system in Wakefield is quite useful for locals that need to connect to major locations including retail areas, bus stations, and railways. Tons of passengers use this free system everyday, but for service to the Leeds Bradford International Airport, a Wakefield minibus hire service is the best option. This way the visitor can avoid the confusion and stress that comes with finding various locations quickly in a foreign city.

Wakefield has quite an abundance of prisons, which have held some of the most notorious prisoners including Charles Bronson, Klaus Fuchs, and Ian Huntley. The Wakefield Prison once was a female prison, whereby the famous nursery rhyme "Here We Go Round The Mulberry bush" was created, as the women spent allotted time bonding with their children. Typically, this does not inspire interest in tourists, yet it does seem to arouse interest in this particular case. In addition to Wakefield's notorious prisons, the National Coal Mining Museum For England is a very popular tourist spot, located on the A642 next to Horbury.  The museum does its best to capture the history, as the miners went on strike over two hundred years ago attempting to reclaim their livelihood due to pit closures. In addition to the museum, Pugneys Country Park, Sandal Castle, Walton Hall, Wakefield Cathedral, and Nostell Priory are also worth seeing. The best way to attempt seeing as many of these landmarks as possible is to request a Wakefield minibus hire service.

It is far too difficult to visit these points of interest while at the mercy of a bus schedule. Having to deal with transfers and all of the other confusion that comes with public transportation can be a nuisance. This is where a pre-booked minibus taxi or coach hire can help.
