Discover Huddersfield was established in 2012 when with the support of Kirklees Council four unique trails were developed to help members of the general public and visitors of Huddersfield find out more about our fabulous town.

Since then we have developed thirteen additional trails and aim to create further trails to promote the gems this town has to offer.
