Unrivalled regional retail and leisure destination

The flexibly designed Axiom shopping and entertainment development near Castleford in West Yorkshire will allow for an ever-evolving mix of the world’s best retail and leisure offerings, creating an unmatched day out for the entire region.

Superbly located

Axiom is a superbly located development, which will be the largest out-of-town shopping centre in England so far this century. It is accessible directly from the M62, and is only one mile from the A1 and eight miles from the M1. 2.2 million people live within a 30-minute drive, with Leeds and Doncaster under 20 minutes away. 

Chapman Taylor designed this regionally and nationally significant development on behalf of the Lateral Property Group and Highgrove Group.

Flexibly designed

The shopping centre will include 75 units, including leading names such as M&S, Next, Primark and Boots, complemented by the adjacent Designer Outlet centre called ‘Junction 32’ and an XSCAPE leisure and entertainment area, one of only six in the UK. The scheme is flexibly designed to allow for an ever-evolving mix of retail and leisure.

A community mix

State-of-the-art digital infrastructure will be used throughout the centre, including stunning LED screens and façades, the first of their type in the UK. A new 10,000-capacity community stadium will be built as a home for Castleford Tigers Rugby League team and as a venue for concerts and other events, as well as a 40-acre country park area. 

Axiom has been predicted by retail analysts CACI to become a top 30 retail destination for the UK.
