Living in Castleford

All of this, right on your doorstep

Things to do

As a town that’s one of the 12 founding members of the Rugby Super League, fixtures featuring local heroes, the Castleford Tigers, are always popular events and fun for all the family.

If you prefer winter sports, there’s also the Snozone, Xscape, which boasts the 2nd largest indoor snow slope in Britain. Xscape, as its name suggests, transports you away to a wintry wonderland. Whether you’re a beginner or at a more advanced level, it’s a lovely holiday experience you can enjoy without having to leave your doorstep.

If you would rather a more relaxing day, why not give Castleford Cut Moorings a visit? With a mooring site located only half a mile from Castleford Town Centre, you can take a calming boat trip down by the West Yorkshire countryside.


Castleford is the perfect town for the discerning shopper.

Although the town boasts several shops, the biggest complex is undoubtedly the Junction 32 multi-store outlet. Best described as a "shopping village", Junction 32 is home to a wide range of affordable big brand high street fashion, homeware, and lifestyle stores. You will be left spoilt for choice with the sheer variety of products on offer.

If you are after a more local feel, why not visit Castleford Market?

A collection of indoor and outdoor markets selling everything from freshly caught fish and locally-sourced meats and vegetables – to Vinyl Record shops and Arts and Crafts stalls – there is something for everyone at Castleford Market.

We encourage you to pop down at some point to get a taste of what Castleford's diverse community of traders has to offer!


Castleford sits on both the Hallam and Pontefract train lines and is only a 1.5km drive from the M62 – easily accessible via the A656 road.

Simply turn off at Junction 32 and you're there!

Over the last few years, Castleford's transport sector has also overseen some truly transformative developments:

In 2016, a new £6m bus station was commissioned to serve Castleford and the neighbouring Five Towns area – situated adjacent to Castleford's railway station.

Indeed, the railway station itself received a major revamp in 2021, making it a more comfortable experience for travellers coming in and out of Castleford and a much easier hub to navigate too.


Known for its collection of quirky and affordable restaurants, you will always find what you need when browsing through Castleford's various eateries. Or perhaps you have younger children who are particularly difficult to cater for? There are places like the Harvester Winding Wheel, with its menu designed to appeal to even the fussiest of eaters. They offer a wide range of kid’s meals as well as, for the grown-ups, a tasty grill, and their salad bar – it’s a great place for a lovely family lunch.

Castleford is also home to several sweet cafés too if you find yourself craving something a little lighter. One of the local favourites is the Twisted Tree. Famous for its afternoon tea with all the trimmings, the Twisted Tree is not afraid to put their own “twist” on classic dishes (try their buttermilk burger or their Malumi fries!). They also offer a wide range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. When looking for somewhere to eat in Castleford, you will certainly not be starved for choice.
