Situated in West Yorkshire, Halifax has often been overlooked, but real investment has ensured that this market town has quickly been restored to its former glory. In the 18th century, the town was the centre of the British wool industry, and today, it has the beautiful restored Piece Hall to show for it, with its European-style plaza filled with historical exhibits, shops, bars and restaurants.
Close enough to Bradford, Leeds and Manchester to be easily commutable, homes here are still affordable. Locals enjoy the town’s music scene, the fantastic covered Borough Market, the Square Chapel Arts Centre and the nearby children’s museum, Eureka. And when the hustle and bustle of the town centre no longer appeals, head out to the Pennines to blow the cobwebs away.

For a town of its size, Halifax is incredibly well connected by train. Commuters will note that Bradford (15 minutes), Leeds (40 minutes) and Manchester (50 minutes) are all relatively close by. In terms of motorways, there is easy access to the M62 which opens up the Peak District as well as the other major cities of the North.
For those looking to travel around the city, Halifax has a reliable bus service that connects the town centre with neighbouring rural villages. There is also plenty of parking in the town centre to encourage residents and tourists to spend locally.
Neighbourhoods both south and west of the town centre are popular with families. Savile Park has a range of beautiful sandstone Victorian homes of all sizes, and has the added benefit of being close to a wonderful green space that is the hub of the community all year round. Skircoat Green also has everything you’d ever need, close to the Calderdale Royal Hospital.
