Limousines for Hire in Halifax
You probably know that, like Bradford and Huddersfield, Halifax owes much of its wealth to the textiles industry. But did you also know it had connections with Ewan MacGregor?
Halifax comfortably embraces the old and the new. Much of the town centre is a conservation area, with many listed buildings. Dominating this centre is the Victorian Borough Market, where household names and small businesses sit side by side.
Adjacent to the Woolshops Shopping Centre, with its selection of high street names, is the 18th century Piece Hall. Originally built to house more than 300 merchants’ rooms, it was mercifully saved from demolition in 1972.
Today, like the rest of Halifax, it has moved with the times, and Piece Hall is now a centre for stylish café bars and contemporary retail outlets. And that Ewan MacGregor connection? The building was used when filming Brassed Off.
Other architectural delights in Halifax include the Bankfield Museum, home to one of the finest costume and textile displays in the country, and the Calderdale Industrial Museum, which offers a noisy glimpse into the mechanical world of the working mill.
Five minutes walk from the town centre will bring you to Eureka!, the award winning hands-on museum designed especially for 3-12 year olds. Here children (and big kids!) can explore walk-in body parts, discover the science behind sound and rhythm, and even travel to amazing, faraway places across the globe. And the under 5s will love the magical experience of Desert Discovery!
After all that excitement, you’ll want a welcome break in one of the town’s many cafes or restaurants. Or, if it’s nightlife you are looking for, Halifax has dozens of pubs and bars and several lively nightclubs.
