Things to do in Huddersfield, Halifax and the surrounding area

 

Situated close to Yorkshire's many attractions, you are sure to find something to entertain you.

Holmfirth

Best known for its Last of the Summer Wine connections, there is far more to discover in the Holme Valley. Quiet villages nestle in this picturesque valley, which cuts deep into the heather moorland of the Peak District.

Eureka!

If you are one of our younger visitors you may want to take a trip to The Museum for Children, which is the first and foremost hands-on children's museum in the UK and is designed especially for 0-11 year olds.

Greenhead Park

Greenhead Park is the main park in Huddersfield and is on land which was originally open fields, used for public meetings, concerts, galas, firework displays and even balloon landings. It was opened in 1884 and was the 2nd park serving the town, it has been popular with residents ever since.

Castle Hill

Perched on a steep hill overlooking the northern industrial town of Huddersfield in the Kirklees area of West Yorkshire, the imposing structure of the Victoria Tower was built to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Victoria's reign, and was completed in 1899.

Black Hill Plateau

This is a superb walk, taking in parts of the Pennine Way and the old route of the Pennine Way off Black Hill.

Standedge Tunnel

This unique spot transports you to another world. Reopened in 2001 after a 20 year restoration programme, the Standedge Tunnel & Visitor Centre sits on the banks of the historic Huddersfield Narrow Canal, a waterway of startling contrasts, from tranquil countryside to dramatic mills.
