West Yorkshire Area Guide
Unlike its neighbouring counties to the North and East, West Yorkshire is a heavily urban area which includes major cities such as Leeds, Wakefield, Bradford and Huddersfield. The county was formed in the early seventies from pieces of other bits of Yorkshire and now comprises the Metropolitan Boroughs of Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield.
West Yorkshire unfortunately lacks some of the natural beauty that other parts of Yorkshire boast, although it does feature the eastern slopes of the Pennines and plenty of gentle, broad valleys. The landscape is criss-crossed heavily with roads, rail and canals, which provided the area with its major means of transport during the industrial revolution.
Prosperity varies widely by area. Bradford is still less affluent than Leeds which has become a smart and prosperous town. Wakefield was hit heavily by the decimation of the mining industry in the eighties but has since seen some regeneration.
The area has a population of around 2 million and significant immigrant populations. Just under 90% of the population describe themselves as white while 8.7% are South Asian. Bradford in particular has a high number of immigrant populations from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan.
Bradford and Leeds have a high concentration of primaries and secondaries - Bradford has 53 secondary schools and Leeds 61. There are also a high number of schools in Kirklees, Wakefield and Calderdale. The best achieving school in Leeds - the Grammar School at Leeds - achieves a 99% rate of GCSEs grade A-C in maths and English. For some schools in the city, however, this drops to all the way down to 20-30%. Bradford Grammar School again has a 99% achievement rate while some schools slip down to 30-40%.
West Yorkshire has excellent road links, with easy access to the M1 travelling North to South and the M62 travelling East to West. The two major railway hubs are situated in Leeds and Bradford. Only Leeds has direct links with London with journey times at around two hours.
Travel abroad is from Leeds Bradford International Airport which has routes to other parts of the UK and Ireland, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.
Amenities and Shopping
Leeds is the major retail hub for the country with an immense pedestrianised centre and several shopping centres including the Merrion Centre, Leeds Shopping Plaza, St John's Centre and The Light. Leeds is also famous for its upmarket shops; the Victoria Quarter features Harvey Nichols, Paul Smith, Diesel, Louis Vuitton and Vivienne Westwood. Another major shopping centre is under construction - Trinity Leeds - which will have 120 outlets such as Marks and Spencer, Topshop and Next, as well as food courts and restaurants.
Wakefield also has a number of shopping centres featuring the usual chain stores. Bradford is less of a shopping mecca but has long been a centre for film and media production, evidenced by the National Media Museum. It is also renowned as being the curry capital of the world, with a high concentration of excellent Indian restaurants.
