Discover Huddersfield

Discover Huddersfield Walks & Trails Project

Discover Huddersfield offers new ways to experience this amazing Yorkshire town, through guided walks, talks and trails. See Huddersfield at its very best: grand listed buildings and small independent shops; a place for radicals from the Luddites to the Sex Pistols; the birthplace of Rugby League; a town rich in creativity, stories, heritage and the odd ghostly encounter.

Discover Huddersfield is a community led project supported with funding received from Kirklees Council’s High Street Innovation Fund.
