Wander around Halifax’s historical buildings

Halifax, West Yorkshire

Halifax is home to the unique Grade I Georgian masterpiece; the Piece Hall and other amazing Heritage attractions.

Built in 1779 for the trading of 'pieces' of woollen cloth, Piece Hall has undergone a £19m transformation. It reopens this Summer with an interpretation centre, independent shops and restaurants, set around the building’s spectacular courtyard.

Halifax's ornate Grade ll* listed town hall was designed by Charles Barry, who designed the Houses of Parliament. The building has a magnificent 180ft tower and spire, enriched with sculpture.

Grade I listed Halifax Minster has been at the heart of local life for 900 years and is the spiritual home to the Duke of Wellington Regiment. You will find the Duke’s Regimental Museum nearby at Bankfield Museum, telling the stories of the soldiers who served the ‘Iron Duke’ using their own words.
