Things To Do In Huddersfield
Greenhead Park. This is one of the most exceptional venues for a picnic on a sunny afternoon. From playing basketball or having a go on the tennis courts, to exploring the vast conservatory or ornamental gardens, there’s truly something for everyone here. The park has won awards in recent years for the services and facilities it operates – perfect for a family day out.
Castle Hill. (Photo) Castle Hill stands a whopping 900 feet above sea level and it offers some really spectacular views. The site is a designated ancient monument which also features Victoria Tower, definitely worth a visit if you’re a fan of interesting architecture.
Beaumont Park. Like Greenhead Park, this park has also won Green Flag awards for its services and facilities. It’s the oldest park in the city and has everything you could want for a pleasant family afternoon – woodland play areas, walks, ponds, a waterfall and a fountain. This park attracts visitors far and wide throughout the year, looking for bike rides, picnics and more.
Holmfirth Vineyard. If you’re planning a weekend away without the kids then Homfirth Vineyard is a perfect escape. Holmfirth is just out the outskirts of Huddersfield, easily reachable, and was the setting for Last Of The Summer Wine! Tours run throughout the day and you can even enjoy dinner in their on an evening if you book a table. If wine tasting is your thing, then give this place a try.
The Markets of Huddersfield. No matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find amid the Huddersfield markets. You’ve got a few to choose from – Queensgate Market and the Open Market are the two most popular, and with good reason. Queensgate has well over 100 shops, with everything from beauty salons to fish mongers as well as a play area to keep the little ones amused.
The Pure North Cider Press. Perhaps you prefer a nice pint of cool cider to a glass of wine. If so, the cider press lets you explore the orchard and watch traditional cider being made right there and then. Because of its rural location (just outside Huddersfield, near Deanhouse), it’s extremely popular with dog walkers and ramblers – and there’s nothing nicer than finishing off a walk with a nice cool glass of home-brewed cider.
Regardless of what your interests are, or large your family is, you’re bound to find something incredible to experience in Huddersfield. Perhaps you’ll even choose to relocate!
