Limousines for Hire in Huddersfield
The Guardian once called Huddersfield ‘The Athens of the North’. Explore it for yourself and discover why, travelling in one of our Professionally Chauffeured Limousines.
Like many places in West Yorkshire, most notably Bradford, Huddersfield grew from its thriving textiles industry and its fine woollen worsteds are still being sent to customers all over the world.
Today, this renown is complemented by Huddersfield’s boom in media and creative industries. It has a growing artistic reputation and is now well known for its carnivals, concerts, poetry and award winning festivals.
Huddersfield offers a wealth of entertainment throughout the year. The Lawrence Batley Theatre has a varied programme of dance, drama and comedy, and there are regular live music nights in the huge variety of bars, pubs and clubs throughout town.
And if you want to take in some shopping, stroll around the elegant Victorian Byram Arcade or explore the high street shops of Kingsgate. If you are visiting on market day, then Huddersfield’s market is a real treat. Largely housed under a magnificent Victorian cast iron and glass structure, it is the browser’s paradise.
The textiles boom of the Victorian era has left Huddersfield with well over a thousand listed buildings, not least of which is the fine railway station, once described by Sir John Betjeman as “a stately home with trains running through it.”
At the other end of the spectrum is the ultra-modern award winning Galpharm Stadium, home to Huddersfield Giants rugby league club and Huddersfield Town AFC.
Huddersfield Art Gallery has an excellent permanent collection of British art, including works by Francis Bacon and Henry Moore, as well as a constantly changing exhibition space featuring contemporary art by national and regional artists.
On the outskirts of Huddersfield you will find the Tolson Museum. The collections cover local history, archaeology, natural history and transport, including Britain’s rarest car, the three wheel ‘LSD’, built in Huddersfield after the First World War.
