About the location


Bradford 7.6 miles, Huddersfield 8.2 miles, Leeds 16.4 miles

Halifax is a minster town in West Yorkshire historically known for its woollen manufacturing starting in the 15th century. Now it stands as one of the best spots to observe Georgian and Victorian landmarks, including Piece Hall, a Grade I listed building boasting unique architecture and a lot of history surrounding the past industries of the area. Surrounded by the Calderdale Industrial Museum, Halifax Central Library, and a wide selection of eateries and shops to explore, this historical landmark makes a great focal point for your trip in the town. Halifax offers something for everyone; the Eureka! National Children's Museum promises a fun-filled day out for all the family, whereas the two theatres of Victoria Theatre and Halifax Playhouse offer a great opportunity to get involved in culture and watch fantastic performances. Just a short drive away you will stumble across the bustling city of Bradford, the world's first UNESCO City of Film, be sure to visit the National Science and Media Museum, along with diving into the culture of Britain's 'curry capital' and dining in a delicious Indian restaurant. If you head south you will find Huddersfield, with its Lawrence Batley Theatre, art gallery and various historical landmarks, it also offers ample opportunities to immerse yourself in a cultural experience. Close to the vibrant city of Leeds and surrounded by plenty of action and activity, Halifax makes a brilliant base for exploring the wonders of West Yorkshire.
