Bus Travel in Heckmondwike

Nestled in the heart of West Yorkshire, Heckmondwike and Ponderosa Zoo are ideal destinations by bus

Heckmondwike is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Kirklees perched on the edge of the Pennine Hills. It was a tiny village until the early 19th century when it became known for carpet weaving and blanket manufacturing. A must-do for families in these parts is a visit to Ponderosa Zoo with its indoor and outdoor play areas and a pretty lakeside restaurant. Why not avoid the hassle of finding a parking space and relax on the bus instead?

We offer several routes in and around Heckmondwike so why not explore the town by bus. Tour the locality and nearby towns such as Dewsbury and Ossett or take the bus to Leeds, Wakefield, Huddersfield, or Bradford.
