West YorkshireHalifax

Halifax grew to prominence during the Industrial Revolution when the textile industry boomed.

One of the town's most notable buildings is the Piece Hall, dating from 1779.†In this quadrangled hall, boasting 315 rooms, merchants displayed pieces of cloth on market days.

Halifax has many magnificent Victorian buildings including the Town Hall, designed by Sir Charles Barry (who created the Houses of Parliament), and the church of All Souls, built by Sir George Gilbert Scott.†

Other attractions include the Wainhouse Tower, an elaborate chimney built in 1871 for a dye house but never used, and the Halifax Gibbet, where 50 people were executed for stealing cloth between 1550 and 1650.†

Visitors to the Bankfield Museum, located in a wonderful Victorian mill owner's house, can view an internationally important collection of textiles.

Other museums include the Calderdale Industrial Museum ( currently closed ), the Duke of Wellington's Regiment Museum and Eureka, the Museum for Children.†Galleries include the Smith Art Gallery and the Piece Hall Gallery.†

Halifax is a bustling town noted for its shopping arcades and markets.†The Piece Hall holds a general market every Friday and Saturday.†

There are also plenty of parks and open spaces and a spectacular section of the Rochdale Canal runs through the Calder Valley.†
