Borough Market in Halifax

Borough Market in Halifax

Yorkshire Pennine town Halifax is renowned for its beautiful Victorian architecture, culminating in the magnificent Halifax town hall dating from 1863 and designed by architect Charles Barry of 'Houses of Parliament' fame.  Other Victorian gems include the central covered market with a variety of local produce stalls and Halifax is home to Georgian treasure, the Piece Hall market square first opened in 1779 as a market for handloom weavers selling their cloths.

Visit the Dean Clough Arts Centre housed in what was once one of Europe's largest carpet factories, and today features galleries showcasing up and coming contemporary art, including one of Yorkshire's largest contemporary art spaces, the Crossley Gallery named after the mighty carpet makers once located here. Halifax is great for unique crafts, vintage shops and chic boutiques in the town centre and around the balconies of beautiful Georgian Piece Hall. Don't miss a trip out to the Medieval timber-framed Shibden Hall in the pretty Shibden Valley, just one mile outside of Halifax, once the home of Anne Lister, writer of the famous coded diaries.

Families love Halifax as it's in this West Yorkshire town where you'll find one of Yorkshire's most popular family attractions, 'Eureka! The National Children's Museum' which has been enthralling children since it first opened in 1992! Constantly updating its interactive galleries and with an on-site shop and cafe, Eureka runs special events and activities for families every weekend.
