What to see in Huddersfield

Book a hotel in Huddersfield at St Andrew's Road to stay near Tolson Memorial Museum in Ravensknowle Park. Housed in a Victorian mansion, the Tolson Museum houses exhibitions on the history of Huddersfield, the Luddite rebellion, and 15 galleries showcasing artefacts related to transport, textiles, and World War I. You can also observe a stunning bird room displaying a wide array of finches, owls, ducks, crows, and small birds like yellowhammer, golden oriole, and pied flycatcher. If you’re looking to spend time outdoors, try to book a Huddersfield hotel within walking distance of Greenhead Park, founded in 1884. The 30 acres of greenery is located a mere half-mile from the Huddersfield town centre. In this pretty park, which has won a Green Flag award for its contribution to the environment, you'll find five lakes, fountains, a summertime paddling pool, and even a miniature railway. If you’re touring Huddersfield with the kids, head to Clayton West for a ride on the Kirklees Light Railway. The 50-minute ride on a steam-hauled locomotive travels to Shelley Woodhouse Station, where you'll find a restaurant and children’s play area.

Where to stay in Huddersfield

For a family holiday in Huddersfield, book a cheap hotel near the town centre, with the historic Market Cross as the main landmark. Huddersfield Railway Station is nearby, and the neighbourhood is dotted with restaurants, pubs, an ice-cream parlour, and shopping plazas to spend quality time with family.

For shopping, theatre, and art, you'll be near the Byram Arcade as well as Lawrence Batley Theatre, where there are regular drama, comedy, music, and dance performances. The Art Centre nearby also offers fine arts workshops, which are worth attending if you have time. For something a bit different and a more rural air, book accommodation out near Castle Hill.
