The market town of Pontefract is located in West Yorkshire and is steeped in history. Did you know Pontefract is one of the few places in England with soil that is suitable for growing liquorice? Seek out Sir John Betjeman’s poem, The Liquorice Fields of Pontefract. The presence of the crop led to the creation of the world-famous confectionery known as Pontefract Cakes! Whether you're commuting or visiting, a bus journey is the ideal way to enjoy this fascinating town.
We offer over 10 bus routes in and around Pontefract so why not explore the town without the hassle of driving. Take the bus to cities such as Leeds and Wakefield, or travel on our local bus routes that travel in and out of the town centre.
