Halifax in Western Yorkshire

I've visited Halifax twice and this town has a very interesting local history which drags me back like a magnet. There's also a lot of interesting architecture and buildings to explore, such as the Piece Hall. We return here to experience the life & time surroundings of Anne Lister who lived here 1791-1840. She was a most unique person in her days and was the owner of Shibden Hall. Always looking forward to come here once again!

Things to do in Halifax

+ Visit the Piece hall. This is one the oldest buildings in Halifax and it used to be a market place for wool.

+ Visit Shibden Hall, home of Anne Lister. Also has a small café and a sort of small Village Museum connected.

+ Visit Shibden park.

+ Take a hike into the shibden valley.

+ Visit the Minster. The Halifax parish Church, also called the Halifax Minster has been around for about 900 years in the valley.
