Details

Huddersfield is a true Yorkshire town, home to strong traditions, exciting festivals and impressive architecture. Top class sport, quality shopping and surroundings provide something for everyone. Restaurants in Huddersfield offer a wide range of choice and real ale fans can get their fill with many pubs in Huddersfield offering award-winning brews.
The textiles industry has left the town with a rich legacy of fine Victorian buildings such as Huddersfield Railway Station, once described as 'the finest facade of any such building in the Country'. Architecturally, Huddersfield boasts an incredible 1,660 listed buildings.
Throughout the year, the town is alive with festivals and events, including the Huddersfield Food & Drink Festival; poetry and jazz festivals; the Caribbean carnivals and the Mela; concerts and exhibitions.

Huddersfield is surrounded by picturesque countryside. Dominating the Huddersfield skyline, the modern Galpharm Stadium, contrasts with Castle Hill and Jubilee Tower, built to commemorate Queen Victoria's Jubilee. Visit the Tower or trace the town's history at Huddersfield's Tolson Museum.
