Learn about lively Huddersfield on a walking trail

Huddersfield, West Yorkshire

Immerse yourself in this creative town, rich in culture, stories, international food and heritage. Grab a free walking trail and off you go!

For a cheap holiday in the UK, you can’t beat Huddersfield in West Yorkshire – home to grand listed buildings and small independent shops, the birthplace of the Rugby League, a place for radicals from the Luddites to the Sex Pistols and a town rich in creativity, stories and heritage.

The town brims with culture, with plenty of free museums to choose from. Huddersfield Art Gallery showcases British art from the past 200 years or you can celebrate all things literary at Huddersfield Literature Festival in May and delve into pre-history at the Tolson Museum.

When it comes to free things to do with the family, there’s live music and children’s creative workshops at Upmarket Sundays. Dip your toes in the water at the beautiful Greenhead Park or stand atop Castle Hill for glorious far-reaching spring views. And best of all, it’s all free. Absolutely free.
