One of the most complete Victorian Townscapes in Britain
Halifax is Calderdale's largest town. With stunning listed architecture, such as The Piece Hall, Halifax Minster, Halifax Town Hall and Halifax Borough Market; Eureka! The National Children's Museum, markets, independent and high street shops, theatres and many fine places to eat and drink, Halifax has been awarded the prestigious Purple Flag status as a town that offers a great mix of venues and attractions both day and night.
The colonnaded Grade I listed Georgian Piece Hall houses Halifax Visitor Centre and Art Gallery and over 30 shops and cafes. Stroll from here through splendid Victorian townscapes dominated by our Grade II* listed Town Hall, the work of Charles Barry, designer of the Houses of Parliament.
Halifax is known for its arts and culture, Dean Clough, Square Chapel and the Victoria Theatre are all within a 10 minute walk of the main centre. For family fun, children can learn whilst they play at EUREKA! The National Children's Museum. Nearby are mediaeval Shibden Hall and Victorian Bankfield Museum, combining a passion for past times with great family events and a series of changing exhibitions.
Discover quiet corners; Wainhouse Tower is open to the public on bank holidays and Halifax Minster is one of the finest buildings in Yorkshire, with a noted choral and organ tradition. Enjoy shopping, whatever the weather, in Westgate Arcade or delight in Harveys, one of the oldest independent department stores. This is a town that combines the old with the new - discover it for yourself.
