Travelling around Halifax
Halifax is situated in the corner of the South Pennines in the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale in West Yorkshire, not far from Bradford and Huddersfield. Once the centre of England’s woollen industry, Halifax boasts some of the region’s most spectacular Victorian and Georgian landmarks.
Among the town’s many claims to fame are its confectionary products Rolo, Toffee Crisp and Quality Street, as well as the Halifax Bank, which is still headquartered there.
Halifax is easily accessible by road and rail. Arriva buses run services in and around the town centre, as well as routes to Leeds and smaller neighbouring towns, such as Dewsbury and Cleckheaton.
