Welcome to Huddersfield

Whether you’re exploring local parks, visiting art galleries or going to a theatre show, there’s a huge range of things to do in and around the town of Huddersfield. Located in West Yorkshire just a short commute from Leeds and Manchester, a new home in Huddersfield could just be the right choice for you and your family.

A quick history

Huddersfield dates back to the Iron Age, when there was a hill fort in the local area. Evidence of Roman life has also been found in Huddersfield, and by the Anglo Saxon Era the town had a bustling market. By the time of the Industrial Revolution, there was unrest as the Luddites destroyed weaving machinery in protest against their employers.

Business and industry

Historically industry in Huddersfield has focused on manufacturing, but today there are a range of businesses in the town spanning retail, education and engineering. The University of Huddersfield is a major local employer, while other businesses in the town include the Mamas and Papas head office, Jones Pies and Brook Crompton.

If you’re moving to Huddersfield with children, there are lots of parks and green spaces to explore together including Greenhead Park, Beaumont Park and Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve. Kirklees Light Railway is popular with families, while Eureka! Children’s Museum is just a short drive away in Halifax.

For sports fans, you can scale the heights of Huddersfield Climbing Centre, get active at Huddersfield Leisure Centre, or watch the Huddersfield Giants play their home matches at the John Smith’s Stadium. Other places of interest in the local area include Huddersfield Art Gallery, Colne Valley Museum, Shibden Hall and the Lawrence Batley Theatre.
