Yorkshire is perhaps unjustly overlooked as a holiday destination. It has some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK, from gentle, rolling hills that have sheltered sheep and farmers for centuries, to dramatic crags of limestone that burst out of the Dales, reminding you this is a really ancient landscape. It’s dotted with picturesque market towns, and cosmopolitan cities that offer a balance between the ancient countryside and the convenience of the modern day.
Today, let’s take a look at one of the jewels in Yorkshire’s crown and a couple of very good reasons you should go to Huddersfield.
Bring Your Kids
If you have a school holiday bearing down on you, it’s always a challenge to think of ways to keep the children entertained. A family holiday is a great idea: the sheer novelty of being somewhere new does a great deal to fill the time, and the activities available in a new location will be something your children can anticipate, enjoy and then reminisce about afterwards.
Huddersfield is a great town for children: it’s small enough that even with little ones you can walk to most places easily, and the array of possibilities on offer is surprising! If you need indoor activities to fill a day and ensure your kids sleep the night through, Huddersfield has a handsomely equipped waterpark, a nearby climbing centre and popular soft play areas as well!
If the weather is fine, the town and surrounding countryside are scattered with beautiful parks, and museums about the region’s rich history, from it’s role in the Wars of the Roses to it’s pivotal part in the industrial revolution to feed young minds.
Choosing a wedding venue is a tricky business. Getting married near to home might be convenient to you but if you’re inviting people from all over the UK you need to find somewhere that’s easily accessible for everyone. If you’re looking for a wedding venue in Yorkshire you’ll find Huddersfield offers an embarrassment of riches and is handily near the centre point of the country.
From the town hall in the heart of the town that can accommodate more than a thousand people to Storthes Hall Park, overlooking the countryside outside town, Huddersfield offers a spread of venues that can accommodate you and your guests whatever your dream wedding and, possibly more importantly, whatever your budget is.
