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 the Rugby League; a town rich in creativity, stories, heritage and the odd ghostly encounter.
Discover Huddersfield is a community led, non-profit company supported with funding received from the ‘High Street Innovation Fund’ of Kirklees Council.
You will be able to find a guided walks programme in various town centre locations including Huddersfield library / tourist information centre, the Hub (Hello Huddersfield) in Market Avenue and various other businesses and premises.
